House with the Stripes

Inspired by the stripes on a beach towel lying on warm golden sands, this 1960s two storey beach house was renovated from top to toe, to create a welcoming family home.

 The striped effect was hand-painted by a very patient painter, in an area which had originally been a squash court, built adjacent to the original house in the 1960s.

 A mezzanine floor was added to the squash court to create an entire guest wing, all accessed through a "secret door" bookcase from the main house.
