We are delighted to announce that our Slackwood Farm project has been nominated for an award in the upcoming AH retrofit Awards 2015.
The project has been nominated in the house above £250k category. The Grade II* listed farmhouse in north Lancashire had fallen into disrepair and was highlighted by English Heritage as a Building at Risk before being restored by the current owners.
The house has been restored and extended with a curved glass and zinc clad garden room, which commands expansive uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape.
The new structure is designed in a contemporary idiom and is connected to the house and a small outbuilding by a simple glass link building, which creates a new light-filled dining space. The room is cut into the hillside and a large heavy undulating roof of zinc floats over the entire space.
Booth King worked with architects Paul Archer Design on this fantastic project. The awards take place on the 16th September.
