This alteration to an established stone villa in Newport, Fife, won the DIA Small Project Award.
It comprises an open plan kitchen/dining room that faces south towards the garden and a public park. The existing rear wall was removed completely and replaced with a single piece of glass. In turn, the room opened out to an enclosed terrace where the prevailing wind is repelled using another single pane of glass. Even in the coolest months it is possible for the home owner to eat al fresco.
