Inspiration from architect:

This slate storey sits on a sand blasted, in-situ reinforced concrete slab, which partially cantilever’s over the garden. The Sapele lined openings, with mirror coated low emissivity double glazing result from and emphasize the form of the slate storey, creating a separation from the existing house.
