Engine House

This old engine house on a farm in outskirts of St Austell, Cornwall has been left in a state of dereliction since the area's mining heyday, its only occupants being the farm's flock of hens. Now the current owners are to renovate the building into a dwelling, and required the preparation of the building regulation drawings and specification.

The engine house refurbishment design combines the retention of its iconic features, such as the gable end arched window and chimney stack, while adding all the elements expected in a modern home. This has required the intricate detailing of elements to improve the external envelope of the building to meet current standards without losing the buildings character and usable space.
