One striking piece already in place is the stained glass in the two-storey window at the end of the corridor, next to the master bedroom. It was created by Yorgos Papadopoulos, of Yorgos Studio. Applying his technique of sandblasting and shattering layers of laminated glass and mixing resin and pigment between the layers, he’s achieved an abstract, crystalline representation of nature outside, with fragmented views through to the real thing. This is juxtaposed with silver metal screens featuring a leaf design by Janet Stoyel of the Cloth Clinic. These slide across the back window of the master bedroom.
