A dilapidated detached bungalow has been transformed into a luxury home that uses architectural glass to stunning effect.

The five-bedroom two-storey self build in Little Aston, Staffordshire, features multiple bathrooms, a bar/lounge, an open-plan kitchen living space, a cinema room, pitched rooflights, and a statement-making sunken drawing room.
