Shadow House : Wiltshire Architecture
English Residential Development – by Jonathan Tuckey Design, England
9 May 2013
Design: Jonathan Tuckey Design
Location: Wiltshire, southwest England
Contemporary House in Wiltshire
Our clients were intent on preserving the historic character of this elegant historic chapel but needed to adapt the building to accommodate the needs of their young family and connect it to the garden at the rear of the site.
Complementing the existing chapel’s form and scale the new extension sits on re-built dry stone walls in the garden and is unseen from the street. It is clad in blackened timber, echoing the vernacular tabernacle churches of the West Country; a quiet shadow of the original building.
A glazed transparent passage, which can be opened entirely in warmer weather, links the extension back to the chapel where the mid-19th century spaces have been refurbished.
