Jackeroo House

Beginning as a refurbishment of an old ruined stone cottage to provide accommodation to farm staff, the project developed into a substantial rebuild to create a new three bedroom dwelling. It was important not to obliterate the presence of the original building however, and so the existing hipped roof form has been replicated in new materials and raised half a metre above the original stone walls to provide a continuous ribbon of windows, bringing much needed light into the interior. A second duplicate hipped roof space houses the new kitchen and dining. Beyond this is the bedroom wing which wraps around existing trees, and has a shifted axis allowing it to be hidden from view when approaching the original cottage.
