Description by architect: A three storey extension to the rear of an existing semi-detached bungalow on a steep, river front site that Pleysier Perkins Architects first completed back in ‘08. In 2017 we revisited the interiors adding detail and texture to the original building footprint and palette. Recycled timber cladding to the new extension responds to the site but the street view only reveals the slightly modified and restored original façade.
