For the renovation and extension of a workers cottage from the 1880’s Archi-I in collaboration with Rise Design Studio worked in close liaison with their client to deliver a house which, despite being a new-build, had a immediate sense of ‘place’.

The design strategy emphasised the abstraction and replication of the existing cottage in an extension to the rear of the existing dwelling. The materiality of the existing cottage was ‘sampled’ for the new extension, ensuring a modern but appropriate balance existed between the existing and proposed structures.
