Residential Architecture: The Mill by Rural Design: “..Incorporating the few remaining freestanding walls of a former mill building, the project engages with the buildings past, without replication of its traditional forms..The starting point for the Mill project was the few freestanding walls that remained on the site. The existing walls created a series of courtyards, some of which has begun to be re-inhabited by nature..Some elements are clearly defined as freestanding objects, the Garden Room, Gym and Garage building slide alongside the existing walls, the new raised upper story is overlaid, with a folded larch roof and wall floating over the castle-like structure of the existing walls..” Inspired, creative reworking and additions to the remains of an old structure, engaging materiality and forms, warm, contemporary interior, natural light..
