A farm cottage and barn redevelopment project for repeat developer clients. Outbuildings and a small cottage have been renovated and linked together by a 90sq.m single storey extension, creating a new open plan living area with views out to the surrounding  garden and farmland. Sympathetic, natural materials are used with a thermally efficient building envelope. The building becomes more permeable as you travel from north facing entrance courtyard, with its controlled views and glimpses of the internal & garden spaces beyond, through circulation to the main vaulted living spaces that focus on the south facing garden. Good levels of natural lighting & views from rooflights & full height glazing are prominent throughout, with a polished concrete floor, complimenting exposed douglas fir trusses.
