An existing garage was added after the initial build and didn’t connect internally to the home. Our solution is a bridge that connects garage to house and house to garden. The once inwardly focused home, now makes a concerted hand-shake with the new garden space.

Oh and you no longer have to run upstairs to use the bathroom. The little things make all the difference.
