What was already a home with wealthy historical past in Winchester, UK, turned much more so when AR Design Studio got here in to renovate the previous servants’ quarters of a bigger residence they’re part of. When excavation started, our bodies (sure, our bodies) have been found buried underground. Police introduced in archeologists who decided that the location had been used for Roman burials. The artifacts and our bodies have been cleared and brought to a museum for analysis and The Glass Home undertaking was as soon as once more again on monitor.
The servants’ quarters had fallen aside through the years and when the occupants of the bigger home determined to downsize, they selected to deal with the venture and understand their love of glass. The designers took it from there and created a glass staircase and glass extension sandwiched into an alcove within the rear of the constructing that opened up into the backyard.
They managed to seamlessly add the frameless trendy extension on to what seems to be a standard brick home and did it properly. The glass-coated construction permits mild to flood the primary flooring communal areas, whereas the unique, cave-like areas stay personal for the household.
I’m questioning how a lot sunscreen they should put on…
They put in a staircase to attach the bottom flooring with the cellar.
The sunshine carries via to the double-peak entrance area which options that unbelievable glass staircase.
The flooring are coated in a ceramic tile that appears like wooden as an alternative of a extra conventional wooden flooring as a result of it gained’t discolor being uncovered to the brilliant solar a lot.
