This extension was one of the first on the island to marry a contemporary glass structure to a historic listed dwelling, and shows how the two styles can exist in perfect harmony. The brief called for a light and airy extension that provided plenty of space, and encouraged indoor/outdoor living that takes full advantage of the garden, despite the restriction of a relatively narrow site. The new building incorporates full-height glazing and sliding doors, and a flat glass rooflight. At the garden end there is a timber loggia, accessed from the kitchen, as is the stone-paved terrace.
