“Working with the existing plan, we wanted to bring clarity and a sense of order to the spaces,” Madeleine Blanchfield Architects founder and director Madeleine Blanchfield says. A series of glass sliding doors aligned to enable the house to be completely open or closed off into more intimate spaces, depending on the time or mood. The glass also enables light to reach the previously dark and disconnected central spaces of the home. Large windows, visual connections and a new void to a second level transformed the rooms into voluminous spaces. “Light plays a crucial role in our work, and we thought a lot about its reflective quality upon different finishes, textures and tiles as we designed,” Madeleine says.
