The Park Farm House project is an extension of a 19th century farm house in the small village of Ewerby, Lincolnshire. The house is situated near the centre of the village adjacent to a 14th century gothic church from which the farm house derives some of its architectural language.
The primary architectural strategy was to open out the ground floor social spaces to the rear garden, allowing light and air to filter through to the heart of the house. However, it was decided at an early stage that the extension should retain the diversity of scales and spatial oddities created as a result of multiple alterations overtime. The underlying programatic language was therefore to create a series of ‘nooks,’ through which light and views to garden and church would thread.
