The three new boxes on the roof house a master bedroom, dressing room and bath room, as well as a personal living room and home office. There’s a meadow and apple tree in one corner, a courtyard and pine tree in another, and yet more green space is populated with a magnolia. This urban rooftop space is managed so well that the family can even watch movies projected on an outside wall.

Downstairs, the original bungalow was gutted to create a large open plan centered around a kitchen. There’s also space for the children, a spare room, and a dressing room. Downstairs and upstairs, triple glazed windows pump plenty of natural light into the entire house without a lot of solar gain, making this beautiful renovation super energy efficient too!
