How to successfully design a modern extension to a historical building? The architects wanted the new building to work with the historical context of the site and be sympathetic to the existing buildings in terms of design and materials, but at the same time avoid a pastiche of the old. The extension is connected to the old farmhouse by means of a glazed, short hallway, which gives a visual impression of separation between the two buildings. Constructed from reclaimed brick, the new building generally speaks the same tectonic language as its neighbor, while the barrel vaulted roof structure covered in terne-coated steel, gives it the subtle contemporary appearance which the architects and clients wanted.
