Remodelling and extension of a home overlooking Snowdonia, making it more accessible to the wheelchair user client. The stone walls of an existing outbuilding were largely retained, strengthened and remodelled, below a new roof, to provide a dining room and kitchen. A new addition contains a bedroom and bathroom. It is offset to define a small outdoor space, while remaining concealed from the track which provides the defining view of the cottage. The addition has a highly insulated timber frame and is clad in corrugated sheeting, like agricultural shelters nearby.
