3 & 3a West Street, Fishguard
3 & 3 a West Street is a full refurbishment of a large house, pottery and shop in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.
The house sits in a large secluded south-west facing garden, which has been planted with native plants and meadow providing an oasis within the town. One of Fishguard’s oldest original Welsh cottages sits as a ruin within the garden providing the kiln room and pottery studio space.
The house has been sensitively renovated to retain and celebrate the existing character and charm of the building, whilst introducing unexpected modern additions. Delivered with great care the project prioritises the quiet attributes of spaces - light, air, atmosphere, texture, volume. The designed interior spaces incorporate designer and vintage furniture, unique artwork and photography.
The shop's renovation offers a malleable living and working space. Its design allows for different uses beyond the domestic, hoping for interactions with the wider neighbourhood: as an exhibition space, a shop, a workshop, a place to write or a place to host dinner.
