203 Sebert Road was transformed from a derelict site that, although inhabited, fell way below acceptable standards for human habitation. By replacing the rear extension structure, installing a new rear dormer and stripping back and totally reconstructing the interior spaces, three attractive flats have been produced on a fairly low budget. The site is adjacent to a busy goods train track, that passes only 6m away from the north-east corner. This required much careful attention to the constructional detailing and specification of building elements, to achieve an acceptable acoustic performance.
