Thornbury House II. In Progress

This home in Thornbury reimagines how one might grow old in their home and the need for flexibility that comes with it. Programming spaces for living solo, working from home and hosting cooking classes, it is centred on an open communal area, while the bedroom, ensuite and study comprise a separate wing with its own internal courtyard and outlook. A second storey comprises further living spaces and bedrooms with potential for a separate entry, accommodating the transition from family life to empty-nesting to the potential need for a carer as one ages all the while carefully balancing privacy and intimacy.
