Home Architect at Model Farm Road

Model Farm Road House Extensions

A fully glazed, double-height stairwell is the centre-piece of this house, dividing the house into two unique parts.


As a two-storey house on an infill site, surrounded by bungalows, it was essential that we employ a
design approach that reduced the visual bulk of the house. This was achieved by splitting the house
into two smaller sections which are separated by a central glazed foyer, which acts as both the
entrance to the house and a dramatic stairwell. This all-glazed foyer brings floods of natural light
down into the centre of the house. The large open-plan living space occupies the front (south-facing)
portion of the house, opening out on to a private south-facing garden.
