The brief necessitated the need to double the internal area of this ground floor flat situated in a dense urban setting. The proposed design involved excavating the basement and extending a wrap-around ground floor extension to accomodate an additional 100% usable floor area. To incorporate natural light wherever possible in this deep plan and down into the basement level, not only did light colours come into play, but the use of light timber floors and glass was used internally to provide transluscence and a sensation of spatial awareness. External glazing used sliding doors to fully open onto the rear garden thereby permeating an inside-outside duality.
