Our client wanted a new space that should have a special character, to facilitate and assist the creative process. The existing house sits at a raised level above the street and has a highly modelled street facade of bays and recesses. The extension facade takes the form of a new bay-window of translucent glass blocks.
    The use of glass blocks, which cover a large proportion of the east elevation, allows the maximum amount of diffuse light to penetrate the depth of the space. The translucency has the additional quality of maintaining privacy from the street during the daytime and appears lantern-like after dark.
