The renovation creates two main views; a street view from the open plan kitchen and living area and a courtyard view from the corridor and bedroom.

A translucent black mirrored glass separates the hall from the living space. This lets in light to the bedroom and hallway but also reflects natural light into the kitchen and living room, multiplying the sensation of space.
