A barrier-free remodelled home for a family and its two young boys, Theo and Oskar, who suffer from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and diminishing mobility. The key was to create spacious rooms for the boys with expansive views of the garden, so large-scale glazing was designed to open fully by sliding inside the walls. The timber diagrid cantilevered roof is a playful insertion; as it sails over the external walls it forms a protected play space and veranda.
