"Currently under construction, Woldon secured planning permission for a new house on an 18th-century farmstead in the Cotswold Hills AONB. The client brief is to provide a new house of 6,000 sqft, located and massed to augment the historic character of a site that consists of an impressive stone threshing barn, cottage and stables arranged around a yard and kitchen garden.

The design takes the farmhouse vernacular of the seventeenth century as its starting point with a three-storey centre beneath steep gabled roofs of Cotswold stone tiles. A two-storey extension to the south provides master bedroom accommodation and reception spaces, establishing a fresh relationship to the surrounding landscaped gardens and ha-ha. Single-storey elements are added to accommodate key service spaces whilst helping to reduce the bulk of the house as viewed from the wider landscape.  

Internally, contemporary details such as natural clay plaster carry through the house to provide a crafted, warm and cohesive whole.  The interior architectural details look to a range of inspirations from William and Mary timber panelled stairs in the double-height hall to arts and crafts plaster motifs in the reception rooms.

A Ground Source Heat Pump system is to heat all buildings on the site from dedicated plant space in the outbuildings. Designed in collaboration with Askew Nelson Landscape Architecture and Guy Goodfellow Interiors, the house is due for completion Easter 2022."
