Chris Dyson Architects created this contemporary extension to a traditional cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds, England. An envelope of Cor-Ten steel clads the structure’s timber frame. “We drew on and referenced the use of corrugated steel sheet in 20th-century agricultural buildings and the way rusted steel fits into the existing range of materials in this area,” the architect explains. It was difficult to find a supplier in the UK, though, as Cor-Ten is much harder than typical steel and manufacturers can be wary of producing it. In the end, the team was able to procure it locally from Hollywood Design in London.
