Veddw Farm is a remodelled stone Victorian farmhouse occupying a secluded location within the Wye Valley AONB. The scheme responds to the clients’ wish for a spacious contemporary home that respects and enhances the dwelling’s established character and setting.
Having grown from the original nucleus of a small stone cottage, the existing building had developed in an ad hoc manner with cramped rooms disconnected from the attractive garden.
Hall + Bednarczyk’s design clarifies the layout, relocates and expands key rooms within the house to create a generous series of family spaces that flow together. A new and much enlarged kitchen incorporates a sliding glass wall that establishes a direct connection with grounds that descend to a picturesque trout lake. A new master bedroom on the first floor provides a calm and airy space that surveys this view.
A steel framed outbuilding, clad entirely in Western Red Cedar, provides garaging, utility space and a glass walled first floor office with a large balcony overlooking the lake.
