Extension in green-oak with curved, standing seam, steel roof to traditional stone farmhouse situated on north facing slope, to provide additional Bedrooms and bright Living-room

Situated on a north facing slope and forming one side of a working farm-yard, the existing cottage required an extension to provide additional bedrooms and large Living room.

Extending into the garden on the ‘clean’ side of the cottage, the compact form huddles up to the cottage against the prevailing winds, providing views to the garden and the wider valley beyond. A low-slung, curved, steel, standing seam roof minimises impact all around. The connecting 1.0m wide flat-roof gutter enables building maintenance and ‘slit’ rooflight for the hallway below.

A West facing covered terrace provides shelter and encourages exterior activities. The soffit over forms a sleeping/storage deck internally during larger family gatherings.

The 300x200mm green oak structure sits on a raised concrete deck faced with random stone to match the cottage. Walls are 200mm deep timber frame with an exterior cladding of random sized oak battens. Iroko lift/slide screens form windows.
