We are delighted to have worked on this renovation and extension of an old thatched cottage in a rural part of the South Downs National Park, near Petersfield. The work involves the demolition of part of an old 1950's extension, and a new extension using natural and locally sourced reclaimed materials throughout, following breathable building techniques. Reclaimed materials were used for: windows, shutters, doors, timber cladding, plain clay roof tiles, floorboards, timber posts & beams, furniture and joinery.  

The new extension is designed to be very modest and secondary to the original thatched cottage. The client was inspired by outbuildings and studio-workshops, and it has been a pleasure designing the spaces with her rather than simply for her and her family. The new accommodation provides two small bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a glazed link space, named 'the coffee shop'.
