Merrydown by McLaren Excell

The house was originally the local Victorian girls school and latterly a single story home that had been lived in by the same owner since the 1970s. The original layout was almost monastic: one large room with a single corridor to it with cell-like bedrooms and bathrooms to one side. Architects brief was to strip the building bare and produce a scheme which delivered three things: An increase in the sqm of the house; A more interesting set of spaces, taking best advantage of the building form; Accommodation over two storeys.
