Focus House is a subtle but striking addition to a Victorian Terrace on a very tight triangular site. The elevation is set back from the terrace and the house’s narrow appearance creates the illusion of it being a small extension rather than a three bedroom house. The rear of the building acknowledges its context and is set back to follow the profiles of its neighbours whilst featuring large areas of glazing opening up to an external terraced area. The construction of the house is innovative, making exemplary use of structural cross laminated solid timber zinc clad panels and allowing the entire shell to be erected in a week. The detailing is crisp and simple and reflects the simplicity of the house as a whole.
