Shadow House


Transformation of a Grade II* listed chapel in Wiltshire into a family home.

Complementing the existing chapel’s form and scale, the new extension sits on re-built dry stone walls in the garden and is unseen from the street. It is clad in blackened timber, echoing the vernacular tabernacle churches of the West Country, a quiet shadow of the original building.

A glazed transparent passage, which can be opened entirely in warmer weather, links the extension back to the chapel where the mid 19th century spaces have been refurbished.
