Our client’s brief was a 17th century lithograph of five little fish with human faces swimming “Marvels Of Things Created and Miraculous Aspects Of Things Existing” The notion was to create a home that was whimsical, calm, inspiring, slightly quirky and deeply personal.

We gutted the existing house, leaving only the structural columns and beams. We created huge windows onto external courtyards and removed most of the walls to flood the spaces with light. The problem with removing walls is that there is nowhere to hang art. This became the driving concept and approach behind the design – bringing art into the architecture.
