The cottage has been simplified to create a more spacious living sequence and the new additions provide what the old house lacked – an entrance with some presence, generous circulation and extensive bathing - yet it’s also a discreet coup de theatre that gives the earthbound vernacular a more complex alter ego. Ordered around the celebration of water – the pool started as a shallow reflecting mirror to bounce light into the back of the house and grew to a habitable depth - the bathrooms are constructed by layering oak and thick green float glass, the eerie light and dematerializing effect of reflections making it seem an aquatic underworld.
