folding 5-light window with overlight; iron railings in front

floor terrace. 1st floor accommodation, set-back behind curve-
cornered concrete canopy, has glazed door and thick small pane,
5-light eaves glazing; chimney on left. Interior: designed with
sliding folding partition walls to allow conversion of main rooms
into a single large space, and with fitted furniture, some of it
concealable. These original features survive and include: fitted
wooden bookshelves and cupboards; fitted settee convertible to
bed with retractable bedside tables; extensible fitted dining
table with moveable light above; curved pull-out desk; marble
surround to fireplace with retractable glass screen.
The house and its fittings are a remarkable survival of a compact
house reliant for its convenience on well-designed fitted
furniture, and it is an unusual exemplar of the contemporary of
"minimal living.
