The proposals seek to convert a redundant barn into an exciting radical contemporary house. The scheme aims to retain the character of the barn with its large volumes, exposed trusses, and stone walls. Externally the barn remains largely unaltered, with the stone walls and slate roof renovated. Internally, the bedroom ‘pods’ are inserted into the main space hung, like wasps nests, from the underside of the roof. Glazed walkways, linking the pods, are strung through the trusses at high level. Continuous rooflights are cut through the roof, allowing light to penetrate to the core of the plan. Planning permission has recently been granted.
