This courthouse, originally built in 1907 and split into shell and core maisonettes, sought a future as a functional three-bedroom family home. The design utilises a lost part of the lower ground floor through excavating additional space and transforming it into a beautifully atmospheric bedroom, dappled with sunlight in the early morning. Across the raised ground floor, the exposed galvanised conduit and sprinkler system become considered features, adding to the space, where no light switch was ignored and no junction left unresolved. Secret doors and hidden bookcases add a playful note to this generous and unique interior.
