Behind an imposing facade, this property was single aspect with a basement lit only by pavement lights. The challenge was to bring in natural light to create useable living accommodation throughout. This was achieved with a small glazed extension in the rear light well, with a transparent glass floor to allow light to flood into the kitchen below. The house was opened up with full height fire glass walls either side of the staircase to create a visually single space.
