The brief was to create a home for a growing young family, recently returned to the UK after working abroad, and who fell in love with the site and surrounding woodland on their first visit.

Our approach was to create a visually quiet refurb, with modern elements clad in blackened vertical timber narrow boards, forming a clear language with the traditional stonework of the cottage and byre.
