Retrouvius extensively remodelled this canal side home to meet the needs of an expanding family. The staircase was boxed in and the building was missing the sense of space. A lack of storage and tricky navigation of ground floor doorways had led to a cluttered and confused hallway. Opening up and providing multiple routes with sliding doors and moving surfaces was the answer.
