**SHORTLISTED FOR RIAS/RIBA AWARD 2014 **
Fife Architects completed this pair of timber clad extensions for a private client in the East Neuk. The new extensions enabled the owners of this beautiful farm cottage to completely change the way they used their home. The new dining extension is directly linked to the garden via a large bi-folding door set and has a very cozy new wood-burning stove. At the front of the house, a new porch extension established a presence that was missing in the original cottage and provides ample practical space for coats and muddy boots. Traditional materials and a modern but sensitive approach enhances this traditional farm cottage which is located just a few miles from St Andrews.
