Marcus Tams Architects Stand: B112

Modest in size, but huge in character, this two bedroom cottage once acted as a toll-house serving the old Edwalton to Ruddington Road.

Set within a steeply sloping site, connecting out-buildings are built into the slope with a retaining wall flanking mature trees on one
side and a bridle-path on the other.

The brief was to retain the cottage element and replace the outbuildings and conservatory with something new and ‘cool’ so we designed a simple but elegant contemporary extension. A glazed link sits below the wide-brimmed eaves of the cottage to add definition between old and new; abutting this is a cantilevered steel and timber box that floats over the roots of the neighbouring trees, leaving open glazed ends that benefit from the expansive views out, whilst a single storey rear extension provides more accommodation to the ground floor and a link, via the terrace to the gardens beyond.
