A modern renovation and house extension of a Grade-C listed cottage. We reconfigured the building and added a dynamic multipurpose folding roof that acts as roof, rooflight, entrance shelter and wall. This creates a very strong identity and ensures a unity in the design. The warm materials complimented the cold whitewashed walls of the existing dwelling. The narrow plan design solution opened up the interior spaces to provide a multi-functional space that could be intimate when necessary.
