Following on from the repair of the Old Court House archaeological evidence suggested that the original building was at least three times bigger than the extant structure. Working in sympathy with the existing building a new wing was added to provide high grade modern open plan living accommodation. The extension combined a mixture of traditional skills and materials supplemented with modern materials to produce a highly thermally efficient building exceeding modern standards.
The result is and extremely comfortable an livable building with a mix of intimate and cosy spaces in the old part of the house more public spaces in the new part of the house.
The project won numerous awards including three RIBA awards and was nominated for RIBA house of the year award
