    4. House Bruce Alexander by Tribe Studio ArchitectsProblem: An austere rear facadeSolution: A fun, living wall that will grow and change over timeIn a terrace situation, you likely only have two facades to deal with – and the historical frontage will have to stay as is! So make sure you have fun with the rear. Infusing the new rear facade with a sense of modernity and playfulness will help your home settle into its new 21st-century life. As well as letting in natural light, the rear elevation of your terrace could double as a green wall, as seen in this project. Alternatively, it could be a bright, welcoming colour, incorporate playful windows or use operable screens for flexibility.

    5. Unattractive extensionThe rear of the terrace can present the best opportunity to renovate and set your own design style, free from heritage restrictions. If you peer deeply into this dwelling you can see all the way through to the steel pickets of the original front fence of the terrace. Internally, the dwelling has been gutted and all Victorian detailing removed to make way for a simplified and transparent building. The rear facade is covered in a lightweight trellis and it will be magic to see this place once the flowering vines take hold.
