Devon Cottage

David Blaikie Architects

Devon Cottage is a small scale, single storey late 19th century cottage with rooms in the roof that sits at the end of a terrace of townhouses. The project forms a small extension that provides a protected entrance porch to the house and to provide a 'sitooterie' function to enhance the enjoyment of the garden from a highly glazed, internal space. The addition of the small extension improves the amenity of this cottage in several ways. It allows the client to relate to and appreciate their garden in a way that is appropriate for their current lifestyle. The architecture of the extension was carefully considered to contrast, yet respect the traditional character of the cottage and adjacent buildings and be formed in high quality materials that match and conceptually integrate with the hierarchy of the surrounding built context.
