A complete renovation, conversion and extension of a dilapidated farmhouse and adjoining barn on Exmoor National Park.


A simple and natural palette of materials has been used to bring the new and existing parts of the building together.

The new day room is formed under a butterfly roof creating a light filled space that opens itself up to the hillside beyond.
