The Shippon, Valley Farm, Devon

This project for a young family involves the creation of a generous two storey extension to an existing two bedroom cottage in order to convert it into a sustainable family home. Located in a rural setting amongst a group of former farm buildings; the form and massing of the proposed extension is inspired by traditional bank barns which are common to the area. A glazed link connects the body of the extension to the host cottage, allowing the integrity of the original building to be maintained.
