The design aims to minimally but strategically extend while transforming house and garden. A new concrete casting, clad in Corten steel at the rear creates a hinge or joint between house and garden, adding space and light to an opened out kitchen dining and living space. The upper level of the newly cast element is a polished concrete bath and planter with deep mullions screening views and a shutter opening towards the spire of St Patricks.
