Chy-an-Gof, Pendeen, Cornwall.
This two storey traditionally built stone cottage is very close to Geevor mine and consequently within a designated World Heritage site area. The side extension to this house adds a new first floor bedroom over the existing single storey kitchen, and includes a balcony off of the bedroom which looks out onto the fields and to the sea.
The new storey is timber framed and slate hung to keep the weight down. Also because of the nature of the area the design had to be handled very sensitively.
