Platthorn House
arts and crafts rebuild of a former modest cottage

We were commissioned to rebuild and extend a small early 20th century arts and crafts cottage that was full to the brim with a family of six (including four teenagers), using a cupboard as a kitchen and had only one bathroom. Simply more space and facilities were needed.

Alongside reworking and reimagining the existing spaces, a large full width extension was added to the rear, to add space, light, interest and connection to the mature south facing gardens. Inspired by the character and material detail of the cottage the new rear elevation features a sweeping curved copper roof, with stepped glazed screen connecting the garden to a beautiful double height family living space.

Delicate crafted details continue throughout. Glass to glass corners, stained glass, carved stone, pre-patinated copper panels and bespoke timber detail.
