Drawing Matter Archive

2011–2014

Located within a working Somerset farmyard, the new building provides an architecture archive for a private collector. Inside the remaining walls of an old barn, two timber structures have been inserted with a single new over-sailing roof. The building shell is constructed of a single layer of solid cross-laminated timber, without insulation, external cladding or internal lining, creating a stable internal environment for the archive drawings. In contrast to the engineered timber, the buildings are fit-out with Cedar, Ash and Beech using timber felled from the surrounding woodlands.
