Ollier Smurthwaite unwraps split-level home

  • Comment

Ollier Smurthwaite Architects has completed this £156,000, four-bedroom home in Hale, Cheshire

The house is the second development completed by the Manchester-based practice for its own development company Ollier & Smurthwaite, having already converted a chapel into four flats.

Built on the previous site of several lock-up garages, the house is arranged over four split levels around a void in the centre of the building to ‘make the most of the small site’.

Externally a contemporary glazed bay window that ‘references the local victorian vernacular’ projects from the front facade of the brick building, while to the rear a kitchen ‘pod’ extends into the garden.
