Toby and Jess' House Takes Shape

Toby and Jess make the bold leap into suburbia. Mike Carr and his team have removed all the first floor ceilings, with a new bathroom created in the loft occupying half the floor plate, taking advantage of the views over south Liverpool. A dressing room utilises the eaves space within the loft, with four bedrooms beneath without the need for wardrobes. The roof form is expressed within three of the bedrooms. The chimney breast brickwork is a feature within the new staircase and the main bedroom. A stringerless staircase links the first and second floors. A copper dormer pops out of the roof, with a deep soaking japanese bathtub set underneath the window. The copper ground floor extension is coming soon.
