La Maison Du Coin is a traditional, granite built Jersey farmhouse with outbuilidngs enclosing a courtyard, set on a headland near St. Ouen’s Manor.
Our objective was to recapture the original character of the house, outbuildings and environs and to adapt them to a relaxed and comfortable family home with a sheltered courtyard garden. Our approach has been to carefully conserve the existing materials and traditional construction of the buildings and to reinstate the original dominance of the principal facades of the house.
Working with old buildings requires us to tread a fine line between the conflicting demands of a new use and preservation of the historic fabric.
Use of authentic materials and techniques both restore a building to its original state and promote increased longevity. New interventions, which represent a meaningful new use, are, however, made in a contemporary manner, thus adding another layer of history to the narrative.
To all our clients, colleagues and friends
These are unpreceded times and the ramifications are changing at a rapid rate.
We are already working from home and luckily, we have the technology to operate as normal remotely.
We are currently continuing with our existing projects.
The planning and building departments are still active but in a limited way.
We are staying positive and believe we will come out on the other side stronger.
So, if anyone has an idea or a long held back project,
now could be the time to dust it off or just to touch base and get in touch.
Stay well and safe
From all at a-bcf.
