Contemporary extension to listed oast house

Our client asked us to extend this Grade 2 listed oasthouse in Farnham with a contemporary addition.  By working closely with the client and the council’s conservation officers, we were able to create a light and airy space with views across the town.

Although the glazing faces South, the use of oak louvres shades the building whilst adding the industrial look of the original building.  We also had to work closely with our structural engineers to ensure the extension did not adversely affect the original listed structure.


“The extension was the right decision, it looks great and the roof design makes it look as if it’s always been here. Great design!”
