The pre-imposed constraints often make the work of architects that much more difficult. Stephenson ISA Studio though has done a commendable job in turning an old and dull residence in Manchester UK into a fabulous modern home that exudes transparency and class. One of the major elements of design that altered the look of the existing structure was the extensive use of glass.
