The project consisted of the renovation and refurbishment of a quaint holiday cottage in the sea-side village of Arniston. The brief called for the removal of the existing, worn and leaking thatched roof, the addition of a second storey whilst adding a new roof, and minor internal layout changes. The initial conceptual idea was to clearly differentiate between the vertical extension of the cottage and the original brick base by wrapping the roof sheets over the roof to cover the new second storey walls. However, due to constraints and other informants a more subtle approach was opted.
