Made of Sand is a beautifully considered and delicately crafted two-storey extension that has a surprisingly joyful and transformative effect on the traditional Devonshire stone cottage typology, of which it is now part. Whilst modest in scale, the distinctly contemporary addition adds a rich new layer of history to the property, marking a dynamic spatial shift from the small cellular rooms of the existing cottage to more flexible, open-plan spaces that are directly connected to the landscape through large glazed openings that frame views across the surrounding Blackdown Hills.
