Large Matching Extension to Listed Stone Cottage in Sussex

Traditional-style extensions onto listed buildings are arguably more controversial than their radical contemporary cousins these days, many architects and conservation officers argue that the new structure has to betray its era.
    To successfully create an extension that provides modern spaces within a charming traditional exterior is therefore a mark of the fine attention to detail paid not only by architect Anthony Sherwin RIBA but also by AJ Hammond’s team of craftsmen.
    The use of external materials and construction methods that were used back in the 18th century were specified by the local conservation officer of Wealden council. Local Sussex sandstone layed in a traditional hydraulic lime mortar was expertly sourced and layed by our award winning stone mason Guy Lawford. Kent peg tiles for the roof and bespoke oak joinery, match the materials on this cottage which is situated in a area of outstanding natural beauty in the weald of East Sussex.
