St Agnes Farmhouse

Client: Private

Sector: Residential

Size: 100 sqm

Location: St Agnes, Cornwall 

Status: Concept Design

The Brief: The farmhouse has been extended multiple times over the years resulting in the original house being suffocated by a series of ill-conceived extensions. Our starting point for the design was to strip the site back to the original farmhouse, and then redistribute the floor area of the demolished extensions in a more rational configuration. The new extension maximises the views over the rural landscape and allows the old house to breathe again. The landscaping will involve the removal of a large section of Cornish hedge, so the redundant stone will be re-used for the exterior walls of the extension.
