This project consisted of the conversion of a redundant 18th century 6 bay oak framed barn into a single residential unit. The existing frame was repaired, replaced in part with oak and adapted to accommodate the clients’ requirements.
Site before renovation
The design and largely open plan layout provide that great feeling of a sense of space whilst fully expressing the internal building structure. The dining room is situated within the cart entry midstrey with a bridge link unit consisting of oak and sheet glass over linking the two halves of the dwelling.
All upstairs rooms have vaulted ceilings to the ridge with all timbers exposed within the rooms. In one bedroom we have also included a higher mezzanine level en-suite area accessed by a small winding staircase.
