This piano-nobile arrangement elevates the living area. Glazed timber screens open to a terrace at the rear and a balcony onto the street. The doors open fully to the gardens behind and to the street life at the front.

The kitchen area is expressed externally in a cantilevered, oversized square box bay on the street elevation. The kitchen bay's presence is further enhanced by the horizontal detailing within the rendered square. Cream render within stock-yellow brickwork is a conscious link with the houses further down the street.
