Keyneston Mill House

DMW Architects have been appointed to design a modern extension to a listed Mill House in Dorset. The design responds to the landscaped setting and contrasts with the masonry character of the listed structure.

The existing building is characterised by small rooms and low ceilings and the extension is designed to contrast this.

A framed structure is set away from the existing, ensuring the connection between new and old minimises the material effect on the listed fabric.

The glazed enclosure employs different degrees of opacity and will provide a façade that mirrors and reflects the surrounding context, creating a crisp and every changing elevation

The project is due to commence on site early 2020.
