St.James Terrace is a fine example of Exeter’s Victorian terrace housing. Being only a short stroll to either the centre of the county’s capital or Exeter University and tucked away from the main road, you can see the reasons for making this a permanent home.
We were employed to remove an existing single storey brick tenement and construct an ellipse shaped extension, which featured many eco design elements.
The structure is a highly insulated timber frame, using the bricks recycled from the demolition of the existing tenement as a façade. The doors and windows are powder coat aluminium, and the roof has a zinc covering. During the demolition we discovered a well under the floor of the existing tenement, which we were then commissioned to turn into a feature.
