project description I set within a conservation area, the green belt, an area of great landscape value and an area of outstanding natural beauty, and following the demolition of a 1960’s bungalow, this new green oak framed structure provides garaging and a gym on the ground floor as well as living space on the first floor. central to the design ethos was the need to replace the current dwelling with a new building that would be a sympathetic addition to the conservation area as well as being appropriate to its countryside setting. this has been achieved through a desire to expose and reinforce the inherent tactile nature of the green oak frame which gives the building a rural yet contemporary quality. in addition to the new building, an existing but dilapidated open ‘barn’ has been re-purposed as an enclosed and secure external store, with similar architectural detailing that creates visual continuity between the two structures
