- Project: Clarkes Farmhouse
- Location: Staplehurst, Kent
- Description: Remodelling of Grade-II listed farmhouse
- Value: Undisclosed
- Client: Private
- Status: Complete
This restoration and extension of this 17th Century half-timbered Grade II Listed Kentish farmhouse also involved reordering the internal layout and fenestration of more recent additions to the house, to establish a coherent spatial sequence and convey a clear contrast between old and new.
A new lobby now links the original and new elements of the house, whilst large glazed openings have been integrated to create links to the gardens and frame views of the surrounding countryside. A feature staircase flows through a new double height space, linking the public living spaces to the more private bedrooms above.
