Tom and Emily Hunt’s contemporary eco-friendly home has been built at the end of a row of terraced homes in the city of Sheffield. It combines style and substance for an affordable £139,000. The house was designed by Adam Clark for Halliday Clark Architects in Bradford.

To make the most of a small plot in the city, the narrow self build is spread over three floors and has two multipurpose offices. One of the offices acts as a bedroom for guests, and the other is a utility room. These are situated on the ground floor with the main bedroom and a bathroom.

Behind the house, there is a yard and external stairs up to a terrace with access to the first floor. Outdoor space is at a premium in city suburbs and this one gives the homeowners extra room for entertaining. The first floor is open plan and houses the kitchen and living area. The upside down layout means the living areas are elevated from the street for peace and privacy. There is a second floor at the top of the home with an en-suite bedroom and secluded roof terrace.
