The design is a deliberate play on the scale that complements the proportions of the large, lush landscaped back garden. The scale of the dwelling moves from the original domestic scale, opening up to the grand scale of the garden. The additions floor area is not large, however, the rooms take on an exaggerated size, with soaring ceilings and super-wide walls.
The new spaces are bold and confident in their identity. Enormous openings draw the garden into the house. This change of scale between old and new creates the illusion that you could almost touch the end of the garden 100m away.
