On a former farmhouse domain a grand farm and a little servants house stand side by side. Due to the rareness of such a typological combination both buildings and site are listed monuments. The renovation of the derelict servants house into a contemporary living space therefore needs a approach that sensitively yet forcefully transforms both the internal logic of the little house and the spatial qualities of the listed ensemble.
The servants house is extended by adding a narrow volume to the house. The extension sits on the garden border and adds two distinct spaces to the house. One oriented towards the farmhouse, the other towards the garden in the back.
