Inner Sanctuary House
From an existing office with no outside views, Wilton Studio created a spacious ground floor residential unit with an internal courtyard. New oak stairs connect to further rooms upstairs.
At the rear of the ground floor the bedroom has been opened up to a small patio garden. Adjacent to this there is the bathroom and guest room that faces the internal courtyard. Both rooms frature large roof lights. The courtyard has a sliding glass roof, so it can be closed in the colder months. It becomes the calm, bright center of the new flat. The kitchen and dining room also face the courtyard through full height glazing, maximising natural lighting.
The contractor has used English green oak for the stairs and flooring.
