Annie Kenyon Architects transform a derelict croft house into a sustainable family home. Combining sustainable and local materials, AKA met their client’s brief with a re-imagining of the traditional croft, coupled by a glazed link to an extension that matches the appearance and height of the traditional croft upon approach, before cascading down the sloping site to form a contemporary two-storey aspect overlooking the sweeping views.
With a cosy snug situated in the original building, the extension houses a generous open-plan living area on the upper level, fully maximising the stunning vista to the south. The natural palette of stone, timber and lime used on the building’s exterior is duplicated to stunning effect within the light and airy interior; clean white walls surround generous glazing whilst underfoot, stone flags demarcate the kitchen and timber floorboards create a luxury finish throughout the remainder of the family home – including the bedrooms situated on the ground floor.
After a recommendation to visit Russwood’s showroom by AKA, the clients were so delighted with their choice of board; Engineered Chateau Nut Character Oak, that they ordered a bespoke oak table in the same finish to complement their floor. AKA imparted, “Russwood not only provided our clients with quality products, but also provided both ourselves and the contractors with guidance regarding the exact specification and installation of the floor. We continue to be delighted with their service.”
