The main open-plan living space is flooded by plenty of natural light, with thanks to the contemporary glass architecture.

Large inviting white sofas frame a sleek glass coffee table. They are positioned so, to make a centre point of focus of the impressive fireplace. The industrial-style flume appears to float down from the high ceilings above.
