Manchester-based Donald Architecture has modernized Hocker Farm, a traditional English stone cottage.

Description by Donald Architecture: Hocker Farm is a stone cottage in Longnor, Buxton, within The Peak District National Park. As such, any development had to be in-keeping with the local context, which entirely formed the external appearance of the extension.

Constrained in size by the original garage footprint, the challenge was creating the extra rooms within a relatively small volume of space. Considered floor and roof structure, a ‘space-saving’ stair and an open-plan approach enabled the brief to be met.

A glass-to-glass ridge rooflight serves to flood light to en-suite, stair and hall under. All interior, lighting and furniture design by Donald Architecture.
