A large derelict barn brick and metal clad barn in a rural setting was given permission to be re developed into three terraced houses , due to the nature of the existing structure and shape the proposed design encapsulated a more modern look rather than the traditional brick barn style.
Externally a metal standing seam roof flowing over to create an upper floor cladding with decorated larch boarding to the lower half of the building created a poignant reminder that not all barns have to be traditional.
The three houses were designed to all have the same footprint internally providing three bedrooms a large lounge and kitchen dining room , fully insulated to a level higher than building regulations the distinctive properties have a much higher energy performance level than standard barn conversions.
Internally the large spaces on the ground floor create a light and open feel with windows on both floors providing views out to the gardens and open fields beyond makes this a peaceful rural setting.
Internally the modern interiors benefit from quality throughout with spaciously designed bathrooms and a large open kitchen all fitted to the highest standards.
An open book approach with the client and architect allowed for this project to keep to the original budget without loss of quality.
Total gross internal area 465m²
