Internal insulation retrofit of traditional solid block wall

Internal insulation retrofit of traditional solid block wall

Albany Road - house for garden lovers - winner Green Residential Building 2014

 

It always seemed as if this 1929 detached house and garage had landed on this site from outer space. Seen from the road it made sense - as they fill the site to front - but to rear it meant the house seemed pushed into one corner of a garden that grew and grew the further from the road one went. We learnt the builder had deliberately squeezed other plots to enlarge his own, but he didn't take advantage of the result: we put right an 84 year old missed opportunity!
