The interior was reorganised so all the living spaces were in an open plan arrangement. The design focussed on introducing more light, sun, views and storage.

Storage spines were a feature in the living spaces. Window seats were added to provide framed views, intimate spaces, and additional storage.

Timber and timber products were used as much as the budget allowed, for sustaibality and to bring warmth to the spaces.
