GIVE ME SOME LIGHT
“From dark, depressing and enclosed to light-‐filled, joyous and open”
- There were no windows to the existing living, dining and the enclosed side courtyard. There was neither natural light nor ventilation to these three rooms.
- Initially a Development Application for a modest two-‐storey house, tucked into the roof with two dormer windows was submiGed, but rejected.
- The adjoining owner and the Timber Houses Lobby objected, restricting the possiblity of altering the scale, massing and materials of the house and roof that was visible from the street.
But behind the roof ridge line -‐ anything goes!
