Wakelins

Suffolk, 2003 - for James Gorst Architects

1/7 

The £2m restoration and conservation of a Grade II Listed Tudor farmhouse and barn along with the construction of a contemporary oak clad extension. Traditional construction techniques for the repair of the existing oak frame are juxtaposed with the prefabricated softwood framed extension. Both the new and the old parts adopted breathable construction techniques using sheep's wool and recycled newspaper insulation.

The building won an RIBA and Wood Award in 2004 and was shortlisted for the Manser Medal for best 'One-off House'.

Sandy Rendel was the Associate responsible for the project.
