Due to the very tight planning regulations around building lines, height lines and sight lines our task here was to create a completely modern lifestyle home within the shell of an existing tired and dated house. By inserting a concrete bridge we were able to rework the approach to the home directly linking the street (arrival) point to the new entertainment open plan on the upper level of the house and out to panoramic views of the sea. We could then consolidate the bedroom and family spaces on the lower, more introverted, level of the home with each room flowing out into pool and garden courtyards on all sides.
