Corrugated metal addition to stone cottage

This contemporary addition was designed to reflect the agricultural character of traditional farm buildings in the North Cotswolds. The Cotswold Planners recognised this association and planning consent was granted within the statutory 8 weeks and without any design changes. The construction uses structural insulated panels (SIPS) with battens and powder-coated traditional corrugated steel sheeting. Internally, the building has a double volume with a bedroom/office mezzanine over about 1/3rd of the floor area. The project was designed by a director of the Practice as an extension to his family's home. Photography by Charlie Birchmore.
