Porth Cottage

Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, 2013

Roof lights reflecting daylight onto the light green structure and exposed beams.

Resembling beach huts, two new timber clad elements are inserted into this stone farm building to reinvent this Cornwall property. These elements conceal much needed storage and create a spacious living space that contrasts with the original condition.
