A challenging brief is realised by combining an oak and steel frame

Damson Fell in Kendal, Cumbria is a 1903 Edwardian vicarage that enjoys mature landscaped gardens set in rolling countryside.

The brief from the clients was clear – a modern living and garden space that made the most of the outdoor space to enhance the internal space via large, uninterrupted glazed views.
