MILLBROOK COTTAGE, PADWORTH LANE, WEST BERKSHIRE

A modest addition to a 16th Cent half-timbered cottage providing additional reception rooms, a new main entrance and a guest suite.  The cottage is a listed building so the new buildings are designed to complement the existing without dominating it.

The new buildings are designed as an informal sequence of single storey buildings connecting the existing three-storey cottage to the nearby cart-shed. They are constructed using a traditional green-oak frame with rendered infill panels specially devised to achieve modern standards of heat insulation and draft proofing.
