A wall of glass sliding doors connects the main living area to the backyard. The roof of the extension is pitched up to the north – with clerestory windows filling the new living spaces with natural light.

The different structures are connected via a glazed linkway that clearly differentiates the architectural eras, and allows the old and new designs to sit comfortably side by side.
