An unusually deep floor plan created a lack of natural light within this family home.  We undertook a series of radical interventions to remedy this.  In the centre of the house we created a triple height space topped off with a large roof light. 

Internal windows, sliding screens and hatches create a sense of an internal courtyard.  The daytime activities of family life and the ever-changing light contrast with the quiet of night, when shutters are closed and a series of cast glass lights suspended through the space completely change the atmosphere.
