Floor-to-ceiling windows and multi-slider doors ensure the owners are met with vibrancy every morning. Natural light makes art flourish on walls and invites outdoors in the beautiful garden.
Privacy is protected from the curious eye by windows placed high up that allowing natural light to caress private spaces. Privacy continues in the garden, where the extensive use of glass between indoor and outdoor is protected by green fences all around.
The volumetric white and gray facade is interrupted by framed windows and punctuated with wood to mark the entrances to a warm and inviting home. A beautiful corner window hides one of the bedrooms upstairs. Walking past the sleek wood entrance door, the home welcomes you with a large open space leading out to a green garden. A tree planted outdoors is clearly seen through the glass enclosure designed for it, making the space feel both indoors and outdoors.
Blue and orange work wonders on creating a vibrant atmosphere inside. Large dark framed windows frame exhilarating green views of the surroundings, also flooding the interior with bright light.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests
Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
