The family, a small family comprised of a husband, wife and their two kids. The client wanted big, high ceilings with a view of the garden from most rooms and spaces within the houses. The challenge?

The challenge was thus: how could we maximize the entry of light into the house, without sacrificing privacy? How could we minimize heat gain, but not at the expense of having the house feel airy and bright?
