Stanyard’s Cottage is a project designed by
The proposed design sensitively organises the existing farm buildings, enabling an external – internal landscape approach to the otherwise disconnectedness of the farm buildings. The role of play as a modality has also been a key influence that forms a looping internal landscape through which imparts a journey of varying expansive spaces. Alongside this journey, sculptural landmarks were inserted between and into the building, either as a way of contributing to the journey – or diverting it. This approach to design invited a type of playfulness into everyday activities. The experimental journey throughout the buildings became one compressive space, full of light, materiality and history.
