An Edwardian walled garden was the inspiration behind this new house. Approaching the building, there is no sense of what lies behind the original, high brick wall and once through the wall, the villa retains its sense of intrigue, appearing as a slate wall built to the same height.
Once inside, the house reveals its true, nature: a harmonious composition of two interconnecting glass pavilions, one for living, one for sleeping, with a cloistered courtyard and large expanses of glass.
The orientation of the villa – sleeping quarters catching the morning sun, the living quarters the evening – captures a large amount of natural light and reflects it throughout this four bedroomed home.
