Little Mowlish Farmhouse

Mamhead, Devon, UK.

A new dwelling with a steel portal frame as its ‘core’, a system more commonly associated with agricultural buildings, and a key to the intentionally ‘barn-like’ style – further developed by use of materials sympathetic to the surrounding farm buildings, including “Big 6” profiled roof sheeting and blackened timber weather boarding. Close collaboration between client and contractor enabled a highly cost-effective delivery.

Internally the large double height living space forms the focal point for family life, with all the rooms set directly off of this main ‘atrium’ space.  High performance glazing combined with external solar shading accord with the contemporary approach.
