Henry Goss Architects’ Lode House extension in East Cambridgeshire has finally reached completion. The materials proposed echo the surrounding agricultural vernacular through the use of cor-ten cladding and timber lining to the solar shading element which even met with approval from the conservation officer despite having a clearly contemporary aesthetic so often resisted in conservation areas.
