A spiral staircase was to be a central feature linking the remaining floors, with the family bedrooms located on the Entrance floor and the Gym, Shower room, Reception area and Guest bedroom on the lower floor with access out onto the rear garden. The whole was to sit under a zinc standing seam roof with a glazed atrium over the spiral staircase.
