The project is currently going through the technical design phase and is planned to be on site in Autumn 2020.

Stages of Work: Concept to Construction

16A Architecture were approached to look at options for an existing cottage in East Devon. The clients were unsure whether to renovate and extend or to demolish and start over. The existing property had been extended twice previously and was generally in a poor state of repair.


16A undertook a feasibility study based on retaining part of the existing structure and for a new dwelling. The economics dictated a new dwelling would be the better option. Designs were developed and planning secured for a new four-bedroom house. The proposals are for a highly energy efficient dwelling constructed from Durisol ICF with a green oak framed vaulted roof. The building is to be clad in charred larch with corten steel and brickwork reclaimed from the original cottage.
