The La Remise project saw a major refurbishment of the existing shingle clad house.

We removed the existng treated cedar shingle and replaced this with untreated cedar shingle that was allowed to weather naturally to a sofer grey tone.

A new ground floor datum was introduced to give the sense of the house 'floatng' in the landscape on a dark grey box. High performance grey aluminium framed glazing will be introduced to the ground and first floor areas.

A new timber clad summer house was also introduced to the rear garden.
