We were commissioned to design an extension to an early 19th Century fishing cottage overlooking the sea in Fife's East Neuk. This involved the challenge of opening and re-engaging living areas to face the sea, while retaining the character of the existing dwelling.
A 19th century stair to the rear of the original house forms the crux of the new plan, wrapped by a light glazed extension containing a new living room and kitchen beneath a folded roof form. Moving through the dwelling offers a contrast in light and scale, heightened by oblique views and glimpses of the sea.
