The saying goes that hindsight is a wonderful thing and while for some that may be true, architect Piers Taylor of Invisible Studio found himself tormented by the extension he and his wife Sue had built just under two decades previously. 

In 2001, after they bought a derelict, crenelated folly in the centre of a forest overlooking the Somerset countryside, the Taylors set out to build a modern side extension for their young family.
