Owens Farm dates to the 17th Century, and has been listed Grade II by English Heritage since 1968. Our clients kindly invited us to provide designs for a contemporary and sympathetically designed extension, to replace a dated conservatory that had fallen into disrepair. In addition, our brief included the renovation and extension of an existing outbuilding to include a pool room.
The design proposals are purposefully simple in form and structure, to avoid conflict with the significant and historical context. The minimal detailing and reduced palette of contrasting materials allow the character of the existing listed building to remain as the focal point. The two extensions are similar in design and utilise the same materials to unify the development and provide an uncomplicated and successful response to the clients' brief.
