Reidford Farm

Reidford Farm House had previously had multible extensions/additions added to the original dwelling, those of which had been built purposely for practical use with no evident thought being put into the original vernacular design. Fiddes Architects design ethos was to alter the existing dwelling in a way that sympathetically allowed the property to be expanded whilst also highlighting and emphasising the original aesthetic of a traditional farm house of this period.


By using natural materials such as Scottish Larch Timber cladding we aimed to show a division between the new extended parts of the dwelling and the original farmhouse form with a subtle link being provided by the continuous use of natural slate across all pitched roofed areas. Scottish Larch will, over time, allow for a soft transition between the new extensions and original granite building as the Larch will change colour to a light grey as a result of weathering.
