CONCEPT The relationship of the house, studio and garden needed to be harmonised to all three's mutual benefit. Ceilings were raised, views were framed, spaces were decluttered and simplified. All made way for the black and white drama that ensued.

BRIEF The Victorian bones had some elegant features, but recent renovations were utilitarian and plain. Our mandate was to make internal and external environments sing harmoniously.
