Yew Tree Cottage

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.
