“With the studio as the main view
from the new house, we wanted to avoid
the typical ‘box on top’ look, as well as
solve issues of western orientation and
overlooking of neighbouring gardens,” says
owner and architect Clare. It’s here that
a curved screen of vertical timber battens
surrounds the first-floor exterior and
in turn encourages the outdoor space to
wrap around the home’s living spaces. The
battens float above the pool and brickwork
underneath, and cast varying shadow
patterns across the courtyard throughout
the day, while their billowing effect allows
clearance for the studio windows to swing
open for natural ventilation.
01-02 The rear facade allows multiple rooms to have direct
access to the courtyard.Inside, built-in leather seating in the
living room opens up to a glazed brick fireplace.
03 The stark white bathroom features custom storage and allows
the owners the flexibility of adding accessories of any colour.
04 Splashes of colour and soft, warm furnishings create a relaxing
setting in the master bedroom in the original Edwardian house.
