Of particular note, is the pair of newly formed dormer windows to the rear aspect, that transform the top floor.The lower ground floor has been completely opened up, and retains some wonderful features from the old scullery, whilst being lit by a contemporary shadow gap lighting system that creates a very versatile living space.
