Project in Brief

  • Replacement dwelling.
  • Contemporary layout.
  • Traditional form and materials.

Millfield Cottage, Rolleston, Newark

The site was acquired with a small semi-derelict cottage. The client had employed 2 previous Architects who failed to obtain planning permission for a replacement dwelling.

The design takes cues externally from vernacular farm buildings but with a contemporary twist. The interior layout is inverted, with living space at first floor and a glass balcony providing a gallery above the kitchen and dining space below. Dramatic views are achieved across open countryside from the fully glazed gable.
