Cottage in the Ferns

Client: Private

Sector: Residential  

Size: 180sqm

Budget: undisclosed

Location: Perranporth, Cornwall 

Status: On Site 

The Brief: to extend and reconfigure the existing stone and cob cottage, on a challenging and undulating site, without impacting on the appearance and character of the location. The proposed extension is designed as a contemporary mirror of the main cottage’s form with the existing garden room acts as a link between the old and new. The extension frames views onto the tropical gardens and towards the sea. Internally, the new living space and master bedroom are flooded with natural light and flamboyant colour, whilst externally the material palette is inspired by the utilitarian agricultural buildings found in rural Cornwall.
