‘Right at the beginning of the project, the client purchased the site and, with it, an existing, rather ugly 1950s house’, David Price explained. ‘He initially asked us for a major remodel, but his vision was so complex and ambitious that it made vastly more sense to us to demolish and start again, extending the vision further. Happily, the client agreed.’
