We were approached by a local couple who were keen to make the best use of an annexe building located in their garden in St Agnes on the north coast of Cornwall.
Previously used as a shed and wood store, the existing structure was constructed from local stone, slate, corrugated sheeting and blockwork. Working with a structural engineer we identified the elements that were still structurally sound and designed the accommodation around them. The modest timber frame extension houses a self contained flat for a dependent relative and is clad in a combination of local stone, locally sourced rough sawn larch cladding and Cornish slate. The low key design focuses on views into the neighbouring woodland.
