Listed Building, Alterations, Ottert St Mary

Extension & Alterations to a Grade II Listed Building, Ottery St Mary, East Devon.

Andrew Long Architects have been appointed to carry out the alterations and extension to a grade 2 Listed farm house dating to 1460. The scheme involved the extension, thermal upgrading and new construction of existing insensitive extensions that had fallen into disrepair.

Though the historical analysis and research of old photographs and OS maps, the aim was to recreate the form of pitched historic out-buildings long since demolished as part of the planning strategy and create contemporary annex living spaces that were sustainable, thermally efficient and air tight. The contrasting new design tells a story of the past and present in the context of the grade 2 listed farm house dwelling which dates to circa 1460.

The service involved assessing the existing historic fabric, the reasons for damp and structural disrepair and the proposal of a low energy contemporary extension with high quality materials and best practice detailing for air tightness to mitigate damp and create a warm light and airy air tight set of living spaces overlooking the beautiful lake and gardens of the 14 acre estate.
