location: Maen Valley, Cornwall
Working in partnership with Carpenter Oak, this oak framed, super insulated new build will be home to a local couple who have just recently retired.
The simple vernacular form houses a generous double height open plan kitchen, dining and living space, overlooked by a mezzanine level which is occupied by an office and studio. A ground floor master suite, along with ancillary spaces tucks underneath, while adjacent to the house is a double garage and pottery studio.
Both volumes will be clad in Cornish Larch, both natural and charred, with a profiled sheet to the roof to complete the agricultural and rural aesthetic.
Planning approval has been granted and the project is now on site with completion due in early 2020.
