The original barn had been converted at the start of the century. Our brief was to transform the barn into a ‘state of the art’ modernist property. The proposals strip and remodel the property providing accommodation with a much more contemporary feel and a stronger link to the garden. A new porch has been provided that links into a three storey hall with twin flight oak cantilever staircase. The new family room features an 8m wide opening with sliding doors with a new floating roof with clerestorey glazing around three sides.
