To maximise the interaction between inside and outside the glazed walls to all the main rooms slide back to give full access to the large garden and the balconies.
Inspiration from architect:
The form and language of the new house relate closely to that of the traditional Suffolk farmhouse, with a linear plan, rendered walls and a pitched roof. This simple model has been oriented east-west so that the long south elevation can gain maximum benefit from passive solar gain and all rooms can have a southerly aspect.
