For the street frontage a complex geometry related to buildings on either side and access to flats behind was resolved by angled planes of brickwork. Entrance to the house is through a side passage leading to the garden and first floor terrace at the rear.
Access to the house is from the rear, independent of the ground floor studio. The entrance and staircase are glazed to bring light deep into the plan. The attic floor, facing south west to the afternoon sun, has its own terrace, with full width, full height doors.
