Description by Snook Architects:

Bricks were used to accentuate the cantilevering nature of the solid void over the glazed ground floor corner and emphasise the horizontal proportions of the design.

The double-height entrance space, concealed on the front facade, is a surprise experience once the property is entered, exposing the garden and intricately designed steel staircase.

“The warm concrete mass, with its full-height windows and central log fire offer a meeting of the industrial and the cosy.

Natural stone tiles allow for a unbroken run throughout the open-plan space and offer excellent thermal properties for the underfloor heating.

Almost a snug, the room is disconnected from the open nature of the house to retreat and read in relative calm.
