From the architect: The ground floor contains the garage and workshop area, instead of closing this space up and creating the typical large and dark garage space, we opted to line the walls in exposed light grey painted studsm with a diffused polycarbonate sheeting. Creating a naturally illumminated space internally, ideal for a workshop, however even on it's own, the sheeting lets in a soften view on the surrounding garden creating quite a peaceful and contemplating space in itself.

The first floor home office looks over the existing house and garden, the room is orientated north and a large sliding door allows the garden to be invited in when fully opened.

Returning to the garden, a skin of powder coated mesh creepers is added to the north facade, this lace like structure creepers the skin for the existing garden, so instead of compromising on a smaller 'horizontal' garden, we shifted it all up to a vertical surface, which wraps the north and east facade of the new addition.
