The Old Chapel sits on top of a hill in West Buckland, a 5 minute walk from Bantham beach the well-known surfers’ paradise in West Devon. The church was converted into a residential house in the 50s and received several additions in the 90s.  Our approach is to remove the additions without architectural value, and reveal the original building and enlarge the ground floor, giving the living space on the first floor a terrace which opens up to the landscape.

We have now submitted the planning application for the extension and are now in our first phase of the detail design in which we investigate potential and possibilities for the interior.
