The addition covers four floors including the roof deck, kitchen, living room and balcony and although directly on street frontage on two sides, the owners have opted for a glass-house with the only window coverings being the metalwork that gives the house it’s barcode appearance.

It’s not a home for the faint-hearted or retiring types.
