When Mark Sewell and Eunice Locher decided to move back to the UK they were looking for a plot on which they could build an open-plan, inside-outside home like those they had lived in while overseas. Initially the Sussex bungalow they were shown did not seem to tick any of the boxes, but with the help of architect Adam Penton they have transformed the 1980s bungalow into their dream home, on time and on budget.

To help them achieve the indoor-outdoor look that they were dreaming of they selected co-ordinating Valverdi Iguazu Silver tiles. The porcelain tiles complement the mid-century modern style of the house, while also blurring the lines between inside and out. This works particularly well in the new triangular open-plan living space with the wide sliding doors.

The Valverdi porcelain floor tiles also help retain the heat in the home, as Adam Penton explains; “This house is insulated well beyond building regulation standards. It is triple glazed throughout, the south-west-facing glazed doors mean the open-plan living area is filled with lots of sunlight, and the tiled floor absorbs all that heat.”
