Residential extension to a converted farm complex in Cornwall

The two storey, 120m2 building features a south facing mono-pitch roof designed to take solar panels, and a triple height north facing glazed screen overlooking mature gardens.

Roof lights collect morning sun to pre-heat the open plan living space, which opens out onto a full width balcony with views across Mounts Bay to St. Michael’s Mount.

The living area is flooded with north light but protected from late afternoon sun and north winds by electrically operated hardwood blinds. Ground floor bedrooms open out onto a sunken garden patio.

The contemporary form and materials including zinc roofing, oak framed windows, cedar cladding, rendered blockwork and slate paving compliment the granite, slate and whitewashed farm buildings.
