The brief was to remodel a 1960s duplex flat in the Barbican complex in Central London. sca demolished internal walls and used a variety of devices to bring light into the plan centre. The back-lit tapered 'light wall' on the lower floor is constructed in polycarbonate on a system of aluminium sliding frames and conceals a storage system. The stair was reconstructed and the kitchen finished in stainless steel. A courtyard on the upper floor has a wall faced with a brass screen placed in front of the City Point development - a foil to the ugly tower block. An opal glass screen wall separates the stairs and shower. The structural engineer was Donald Halstead Associates, the contractor was Newcombe Construction and the budget was £49,565.
