Light House

This project entailed a challenging alteration to an existing house, maximising sea views whilst taking into account the east-west orientation of the house. The relatively low ceilings of the living areas downstairs prompted the simplification and opening up of the floor plan, and the replacement of concrete beams with steel. The external living area was extended and remodelled to provide improved connection to the garden. The materials and finishes have been simplified and lightened to give a greater sense of space and light.
