This project was NCA’s first completed works. The brief was to open up the ground and basement floor plan of this Victorian house to improve the flow between floors, within the confine of a modest budget. NCA removed the original staircase from the centre of the house, and designed a two-storey steel framed glazed enclosure housing a new minimal staircase. The glazed structure was slotted into the space between the closet wings of the terrace houses, bringing light and views of the garden into the living spaces.
