This reclaimed modern home in England saw a semi-detached structure transformed into a large and spacious abode. Architects wanted to keep the house's old charm and left the front facade untouched, while most of the focus was put on the rear.

A two-storey extension was attached to the rear, which creates more living space and further unifies the once separated units. A stained timber staircase is also a unifying piece that creates a lynchpin for the merging layouts. The ground floor houses the open concept kitchen, living and dining rooms with bedrooms and bathrooms on the higher floors. The extension also allows for a large amount of sunlight to enter the reclaimed modern home. Bricks from the demolition process are also incorporated into the new space through wall accents that bookend the space.
