An assignment from architects Millar Howard Workshop to photograph Quince Tree Cottage in Rockness, Gloucestershire built in 2009. A large extension to an old Cotswold cottage. The architect’s idea was to build a new Cotswold stone building next to the original house and join the new and the old with a glazed link. Rather than try and match the stone of the original it was decided to build the new extension with a drystone facing to contrast the new and the old. Sliding folding doors open at a corner to allow the kitchen/dining room to spill out into the garden.
