The Avenue2010 - Current
The Ward Guevara household represents both the clients’ home and their investment for the future. The clients' brief was to activate the house as a whole and to bring as much light into it as possible in order to have an airy and light feel to it, different to the dark and gloomy atmosphere it currently has.
The aim is to improve this situation by creating a series of roof lights and cutting back the floors to allow light to reach the darkest corners of the Victorian semi.
This intervention will assist in supporting both needs, particularly concentrating on areas of increasing use, such as the kitchen and to close the gap between the compartmentalised structures the house currently has for a semi open plan that will allow for more flexibility in use of the space. This design will in turn impact on everyday life of the family by creating spaces that are clearly private but at the same time allowing for vertical relations within the proposed atrium.
