Yew Tree Cottage, Little Steeping


This dwelling was designed as a self-build project for the client to live in; from the outset an onus was placed on the sustainability and performance of the design to minimise energy requirements.

The key driver for this development was to create a modern, efficient living environment within a building which would sit comfortably within the rural context. The use of a traditional agricultural form achieved this brilliantly, creating open plan spaces in a structure that looks like it has been in situ for many years, reflecting the agricultural heritage of the area.

This project proves that the creation of modern living accommodation does not have to be at odds with distinctive local character.
