Ivy Cottage

An old and leaky flat roof was in need of replacement.  This provided the opportunity to rationalise the space below and make better connections and use of the accommodation.  The old roof and layout locked the space down, creating an uninviting entrance and gloomy, cramped dining room.

In a conservation area within the National Park and also in the vicinity of the Listed church of St Michael, the solution uses a roofscape that adapts to address the needs of the spaces below, whilst also making connections to the surrounding context.  An asymmetrically placed rooflight provides views of the church tower while also providing much needed light deep into the plan, and glazed folding doors allow access and a connection to the small courtyard.  The vaulted dining room is now a spacious, light filled pivot around which the life of the house unfolds.
