Red House in Aberaeron
Conservation with
passive solar heating

The client had bought a run-down terrace house overlooking Aberaeron's harbour. She wanted something imaginative, but private. Tricks with space and light make this little house seem twice the size. I turned it upside down, making the whole first floor into a living room. I turned it back to front, opening out the South facing back and making a solar conservatory to collect the heat and send it upstairs to the living room.
"Trompe l'oeil" mirrors over the fireplace reflect both the delightful front view of Aberaeron's harbour and back, through the conservatory arch to the well-stocked garden.
