The original residence is a 1960s structure built on stilts on a floodplain by the River Stort. The brief was to construct a single storey, ground floor extension to house kitchen and lounge/diner, to reconfigure the upstairs and to construct a working photography studio in the garden. A master bedroom with en suite, a lounge and a further bedroom were created as part of the remodelled upstairs, offering views across the green roof of the ground floor extension and the new garden studio, which are aligned to offer clean design lines.
