Alteration to existing property

This project is a conversion of a former windmill structure located in the heart of Suffolk. The structure is a mill stump constructed of brick and suffering from loss of its sails and cap decades before. The design replaces the cap with a contemporary zinc pod installation but based on the traditional ‘inverted boat’ form exploiting the stunning views over the Suffolk countryside and provides a fantastic living space for its visitors. The structure offers it’s own challenges of planning and design where no internal lines offer a straight edge making the circulation strategy and use of each space an interesting prospect.
