Just TWO weeks to go until the #DontMoveImprove deadline! "When an architect makes the everyday experience of the owners better, that’s a winner. So it’s not about architectural ego but about genuine transformation of both the home and the owners’ subsequent experience of it." – Philippa Stockley, award-winning journalist & Don't Move, Improve! judge This example, our 2016 magazine cover-shot, is House for Agnes by @tigg_coll_architects – reworked to suit a young family lifestyle, the period house was expended with a sense of playfulness.

Occupying an awkward infill site, this scheme closes a gap in an otherwise continuous Victorian terrace, leaving a space just big enough for a car to allow additional habitable space to each side. The brick street façade mirrors the materiality and proportion of its neighbours, whilst the remaining building is constructed from a highly insulated timber structure, with walls and roof clad in a standing seam colourcoated metal. The main room above the arch provides a bright open space, opening onto a west-facing balcony. Project by @henning_stummel_architects. Featured in the Homes category of the #NLAwards18.

How can the layout of a traditional Victorian terrace house change, to create a modern family home? The Etch House removed existing internal walls, chimney breasts, staircase and floor, retaining only the facade. Dropping the building floor levels, the plan now allows for generous floor to ceiling heights. This project by @frahergroup won third prize in the 2017-18 #DontMoveImprove Enter now to see your project featured in the upcoming Don't Move, Improve! programme.
