This home takes the conventional idea of living and ‘flips’ it on its head. Living spaces are at first floor level to maximise views of the Irish Sea and the Copeland Islands. Ground floor sleeping spaces open off a central double height space and a single storey annexe accommodates a play zone and a work studio. The overall mass of the house is broken up into a white rendered ground floor plinth, a grey zinc upper storey and the single storey annexe connected to the house via a glazed link.
