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 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.
The building is a finalist for the LABC Award for Best Extension or Alteration to an Existing Home.
The extension has also been shortlisted for the Architects' Journal Awards 2019
