From the architects:

This alterations and additions to a semi-detached house aim to maximise natural light and aspect into a narrow, 3.6m wide, south facing semi. The front rooms and roof line of the existing building is retained and a new 2 storey extension is constructed at the rear. The roof line has been simply extended up to Council’s allowable building envelope to allow for a 14.5 meter long north facing set of louvre windows set back from the common boundary line. This provides northern light and ventilation into 2 new bedrooms, a bathroom and, more importantly, into the ground level living areas via a double height void over the combined kitchen and dining room……
