St Peters House 2015
A steel plate planter box is pushed beyond the standard definition to accommodate an additional bedroom upstairs, and a garden roof over a new dining / kitchen area downstairs. The thinness of the plate steel compresses the threshold of the kitchen skylights to their absolute minimum, inviting light and the elevated garden into the home as much as possible. The coffered ceiling spaces expand the volume of the room to it’s absolute maximum. The result is a home that welcomes the previously excluded ‘outside’ in.
