A collection of new ‘agricultural’ buildings at the threshold between the formal garden of the main house and meadow beyond in the small Northamptonshire village of Warmington. The brief asked for an ‘Annexe’ building with catering facilities and a bathroom, where our clients might ‘go away’ for the weekend, a garden storage building with room for an office at one end, a carport and a greenhouse. Using a palette of unadorned materials, local coursed limestone, sawn larch timber, corrugated aluminium and Cor-ten, in a variety of different ways, we have created a relaxed informality between the buildings as if they have inhabited the site over a period of time as needs required. The Project won an RIBA Award in 2016.
