Hawai­ian Blue on pocket door: by Du­lux (as be­fore) with walk-through dress­ing room; a bath­room, and a study that com­mands views of the back gar­den from a stylish wrap­around win­dow. Arnie the cat likes snooz­ing there.

The at­tic now has a good bed­room with an en suite shower room fea­tur­ing a side wall of sand­blasted glass that gets bor­rowed light from the sky­light and stair­case win­dow.

Fi­nally, the back was clad in the spe­cially treated hard­wood, which will weather sil­very.

The ar­chi­tect’s ideas were so com­pre­hen­sive that the builder said they’d built a whole new house in­side the old one.


OR Ann and Chris it wasn’t about cre­at­ing more space but trans­form­ing the space they had to make it fit for mod­ern life, so that it felt good with thought­ful de­tail and fin­ish, and get­ting the kitchen-liv­ing area spot on. They both rel­ish the silky con­crete floor, and the deep, ex­posed pale golden tim­ber roof joists that soften sound.

When she first saw it fin­ished, Ann felt it was like a dif­fer­ent house — and she hadn’t even had to move.
