Contemporary contrast for farm extension

Contemporary contrast for farm extension

The clever use of Catnic’s SSR2 Standing Seam Roofing and Cladding system has created a stunning roof finish for a contemporary new build extension in rural West Lothian.

It provides a striking contrast to the original farm outbuilding, which was sympathetically restored and converted to housing in the 1980s.

Originally constructed about 125 years ago, the main house, which covers an area of 165m2, was formerly an outbuilding to the nearby farmhouse. Its traditionally restored rubble stone walls are complemented by an orange pantiled roof, retaining the building’s original architectural heritage.

The brief was to create a new build extension that would house a kitchen, dining, family room to the ground floor with a master bedroom at first floor level.

Designed as a storey and a half construction, the new extension sits adjacent to the main building, forming a contemporary addition to the historic original. The timber frame cavity walling is finished in a sharp off-white render and larch timber cladding. The exterior is punctuated with large aluminium clad timber windows in a grey finish, ensuring the impressive rural views are maximised.

The SSR2 system is manufactured to meet all relevant legislation, including load bearing for wind speed in accordance with EN 1991-4 and weather tightness in accordance with BS 5534 Parts 1 and 2. In addition, helping to meet requirements for sustainable building solutions – SSR2 is BRE Green Guide Rated ‘A’ and at end of life – the panels are 100% recyclable.

The latest innovation from leading manufacturer of construction products Catnic, the SSR2 Standing Seam Roofing and Cladding system is suitable for conventional residential and commercial pitched roofing, and provides a wealth of performance and aesthetic advantages.
