The restoration and expansion of an 18th century house. Rather than make large holes in the old walls, it was decided instead to create light, veranda-like spaces beyond the walls. This is where the kitchen, workrooms and dining room are located. The rustic stone walls are retained throughout the house, and their rough character is carried through to the exterior wall, which faces the street. This wall folds over to provide the space for a garage and an extra room. The window-frames are executed as a kind of ‘lace', serving as screens to define the separation between inner and outer areas.
