Farningham House Cottage is an 18th Century Grade II listed property in the picturesque Kent village of Farningham. Emrys were instructed by a private client to design a glazed link extension to connect the main house with two outbuildings – an existing workshop building and former stables, both to be internally refurbished. The contemporary glazed link has been designed to be highly sensitive to the existing historic fabric and the special nature of the courtyard garden in which it is situated, whilst responding to the very specific spatial requirements of the client. The new link will effectively provide a fully glazed passageway between the cottage and the stables, with two new bedrooms in the former workshop building accessed from the glazed link. The beautiful verdant courtyard and the fig tree to the stables wall provide a backdrop to the glazed link.
