Ochre floor tiles pull the tone of the oak wood through into the space, while gloss white wall tiles bounce the natural light.

Automated skylights that regulate the temperature of the courtyard and an irrigation system installed in the garden give our clients peace of mind their plants are taken care of when holidaying or at to their second home by the coast.

The garden room also connects the new kitchen and dining space with the study and lounge at the front of the house.
