1 Wester Pencaitland Farm Cottages

1 Wester Pencaitland Farm Cottages
2013
This project envisages a contemporary extension to a stone built end terrace cottage in the East Lothian village of Pencaitland. The existing property had a small, cramp kitchen in the main house and a cold, damp bathroom located in an existing outhouse, which also restricted access to the south facing garden. The brief was to design a new extension with a bigger kitchen and a new dining area with direct access to the garden, plus a new bathroom. The new design demolished the existing harled outhouse and replaced it with a similar form, now the white rendered centre piece.

This new pitched section is flanked by two timber clad wings. The kitchen is located below the pitched ceiling and naturally lit from above. The dining space is in the larger wing with a large window looking out to the garden while the garden is accessed via a new glazed door in the cantilevered corner of the main section. The new larger bathroom has been relocated in what was the old kit chen in the existing house.
