Formally a church, this protected structure was changed to that of a private dwelling in 2016 where it underwent several renovations and alterations internally to guarantee its longevity for future generations. The graveyard is still active today which provided a challenging brief from the clients who required additional space to suit their growing family and lifestyle into the 21stcentury.
The most important element was to provide for additional bedroom and bathroom accommodation for the family with minimal impact to the existing protected structure. The plan layout with the extension connected via a glazed link led to the formation of a private outdoor space where the clients can enjoy the old meets new.
Great care and respect were taken to complement the existing old church building, to design an extension that both appreciates and compliments yet juxtaposes the old with a contemporary flair and being an architecture of its own time and place.
The use of aluminium shingles cladding the entire extension in the same size as those of the original protected structures roof slates brings the two together.
