This triple-height glass cube has been attached to an extension that is the same size again as the original house, and connected to it by an open-tread glass staircase. It creates volume, and as a largely glass structure, it bounces daylight around the rooms.
The extension was designed by the owner, and constructed by Permasteelisa Interiors.
At ground-floor level, open-plan living, kitchen and dining areas flow into each other. The majority of the triple-height space is completely walled on two sides with acres of glass and steel. Dark wenge wood floors throughout the bottom floor help to connect the different living areas.
Cool white gloss surfaces and stainless-steel worktops keep this end of the extension light and modern. The kitchen island and bar stools, coupled with the dining table, create a sociable area for the whole family.
Frosted glass doors leading from the bedroom slide back to reveal a fabulous hotel-style bathroom. To add a little drama, the custom-made Italian bathroom fittings and the bitter chocolate floorboards have been offset with a vibrant hit of blood orange glass.

Reflected into the shower is the eye-catching orange used on the wall opposite. A gloss surface, with glass doors and white surrounding it, keeps this cubical feeling light and open.
The shower was from Flaminia.
