A strongly gridded façade distinguishes this concept design for a Terrace Housing at Mayflower Lane. Situated on a west facing plot, the house is subjected to a harsh afternoon sun. This led to a strong desire to provide much needed sun-shading for the tenants within. In response, a criss-cross pattern was developed off the urban grid of the surrounding area. This provided context from which the gridded façade screens were generated, wrapping itself along the Eastern and Western facades. In line with our desire to minimize wastage and contribute to a more sustainable industry, half of the structure along the northern face of the plot was to be retained. A careful intervention would then introduced to manipulate levels and volumes in the creation of a vastly altered interior space. The ground floor was opened up, to create an extended space from the front to rear of the house. Above, a triple volume space houses the living room, defining it as the heart of the private spaces above.
