If you are going to do it right get it right.  That's the message of this one.  Not the only approach of course but here the existing terrace has been extended by copying it in every detail.  The scale, dimensions and materials all echo the adjoining houses, even down to the stock brickwork with its flemish bond  and coloured mortar giving the illusion of weathering. The gates are not to everyone's taste but so what.  The only real giveaway are the rooflights. Not applicable in every case but this development  works.
