glass houses

The plan of the house is defined by two thick, white rendered masonry walls that contrast with the grey whinstone of the existing garden walls. These walls emphasise connections between old and new, inside and outside. Daylight is maximized by almost half of the external walls being glass, and to fulfill the clients’ request for a frameless appearance, the units are butt-joined and detailed to allow for movement of the cantilevered roof. The walls are thick in plan in order to conceal cupboards, wardrobes, service runs, window seats and fireplaces, so that the main spaces are clean and uncluttered, with their main focus on the garden
