This modest sized semi detached dwelling actually occupied almost 100% of the site from the front wall back. The tiny site had no soft landscaping whatsoever. We extended the built portion of the house, and took a 2 x 2 meter "bite" out of the centre to create a small courtyard. This courtyard served the occupants well as it provided natural light and ventilation to all 3 adjoining areas; the kitchen, the main bathroom, and the study nook. The unformed 6 meter deep rear lane was utilized after a bit of fancy legal footwork by the owner to create a sunny outdoor living area much enjoyed by their children and them alike.
