House and studio cleverly infused with sunlight

After planning an extra storey on an existing house the original was found to be poor quality so this 5-bed home is newbuild on the existing footprint, with a guest room on the ground floor and a work and photography studio for the owners who both work from home. The plot runs south to north. The kitchen, dining and living space overlooks the garden with easy access for the three small children to play. However, as the garden is to the north with the street and entrance to the south, a large 6m wide vista between the front and rear was created at ground level to allow views and sunlight from the south to infuse the whole plan.
