The original circular Oast Tower is all that remains of the original agricultural building and a new oak clad dwelling has been recently attached. Our brief was to create additional living areas and better planned bedrooms at first floor level.

Our response involves the construction of a new zinc clad extrusion to the existing double gable roof, separated by a glazed slot. Crisp, flush glazed openings within the standing seam zinc cladding provide a contemporary counterpoint to the existing building and materials.
