The Same Scale

Using the same width of the old facade for the brick cladded framework to enclose the full glass facade to maintain the robust characteristic scale of the house 

The full glass facade opens the house to the 200m long East garden 



Looking Through

Using former openings in the old facade and some door openings in the old house, but making these completely transparant will ensure that from the West side of the house a complete look through the house into the beautiful East garden is guaranteed 

By using dark colors, Aubergine like for the hallway this effect will be multiplied
