This house, for a private client, reconfigured a single-storey building with kitsch interiors into a finely detailed exercise in minimalism.

The property was extended upwards with a glazed box to provide a master bedroom suite. Window-frames were upgraded from timber to streamlined aluminium to maximise light and the exterior re-clad.

Internally, glazed sliding screens were fitted with cleverly concealed ironmongery and GHA called on its long-standing relationship with engineers HRW to insert a spectacular sculptural staircase with cantilevered limestone treads.
