The proportions and decorative qualities of the principal rooms have been carefully reinstated and the rooms then sparsely furnished in a way that not only emphasises the beauty of the original but provides a perfect setting for displaying artwork in a home environment. The subsidiary spaces to the rear have been detailed meticulously and sit within the cascading glass roofs of a four-storey atrium. Every opportunity has been taken to exploit the original within the canon of classical proportion and restrained form and detail. The outcome is a very beautiful but vital home, tailored with great dexterity to accommodate the reality of family life.
