Hunsett Mill, Norfolk

Something impressive about the simplicity of this low energy conversion or extension [what do you call it whenever the new build is larger than the house?] by acme architects. Mostly we like it because it demonstrates the flexibility and low impact of modern methods of construction and how considering the method of construction for a one-off property might still make you think about quality control and standards that you can achieve within a factory setting.
