Designed for a young family, the house connects original and new living spaces and creates a visual link from the entrance through the family spaces to the garden and on to the new artist’s studio at the back of the site.

Prior to the works, the house was arranged as a series of small, cellular spaces with only a narrow ‘servants’ stair connecting the living spaces on the lower and upper ground floors. Then new design dramatically reconnects these living spaces with the creation of a two-storey courtyard at the heart of the house.
