Description:Heritage renovation project incorporating a contemporary extension to a Grade II Listed Building.
Listed structure – Workers cottage 19/20 The Square is a Heritage residential renovation project incorporating a contemporary extension to a Grade II Listed Building.
The original Listed structure had been used as outbuildings and as a temporary workers cottage and was aquired by our client in a serious stste of disrepair from years of dereliction. After sensitive refurbishment, careful retention of certain architectural elements and materials, the building has been brought back into use as a 3 bedroom dwelling.
The historic structure and the contemporary extension have been connected by a glazed link, mediating between the old and the new. The new structure uses traditional materials and building methods with field flint walling and lime based mortar, detailed in a contemporary manner on a curved wall.
The joinery and fenestration are handmade bespoke items, replicating the original paneled timber doors and Yorkshire sliding sash windows that were key features of the Listed building. The interior has sought to retain visible as much of the original fabric as possible, with the flint Bungaroosh being brought through the glazed link, to connect the two spaces, historic and new.
