DUN­CAN COT­TAGE JAMES GRAYLEY AR­CHI­TECTS

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - The Brit List -

The ren­o­va­tion and ex­ten­sion of this Grade Ii*-listed Pal­la­dian cot­tage in Bath re­quired metic­u­lous re­search and plan­ning. The build­ing’s orig­i­nal de­signer, John Palmer, cre­ated some of the Som­er­set city’s best­loved build­ings, so a del­i­cate touch was es­sen­tial. James Grayley Ar­chi­tects’ plan was for there to be an in­ter­est­ing di­a­logue be­tween the old and new el­e­ments of the house, which are mar­ried by the use of ash­lar, a stone com­mon in the ar­chi­tec­ture of the lo­cal area. There’s stun­ning moder­nity here, in­clud­ing a cut­ting-edge kitchen, but where his­toric de­tails have en­dured, they are cel­e­brated ( jamesgray­ley.com).
