The new, glazed dining atrium does two things. It brings light into the centre of the home and it acts as a central hub around which other rooms can connect and link.

The new communal dining and family zone has north-facing clerestory windows to bring light deep into the space, while sliding doors open onto a sunny courtyard. Even better, the new space improves ventilation for the home, drawing cooling breezes to help cool the solid bricks.

In this home a rethink of the studio creates two cosy children’s bedrooms - or for the future a teenager’s retreat, accommodation for elderly parents or even a lease-ready dwelling with separate entrance." - Steffen Welsch Architects
