Vernacular Architecture & Materiality

Do some research into the ‘vernacular style’ of your own local area, see what you can find out about local building types, techniques and materials.

My research starts in my home village of Stoford, Somerset. Here we are surrounded by residential homes, farmhouses, estate houses, listed buildings, railway and bridges, an obelisk, follies and a school. The buildings are made from local hamstone with welsh slate roofs or red brick and clay tile roofs.
