Hillside Cottage 

St Agnes, United Kingdom

2017–2021

Client: Private

Located on a steep hill overlooking the sea within Cornwall’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, the scheme adds a contemporary extension to an existing dwelling. The project is composed of two main masses: a pair of stone cottages housing residential accommodation, and an uphill larch-clad extension providing continuous living spaces and stunning sea views. A discrete, underground link navigates the site’s complex topography while providing select glimpses of the surrounding landscape.

 

The project was designed in collaboration with RA Studio and was delivered in 2021.
