Capability: Listed Buildings / Conversion

Project Brief:

UPDATE TEXT Situated adjacent to the main Farm House, a Grade II* listed former threshing barn had fallen into a state of disrepair. A proposal was developed to repair and convert the barn structure and to provide ancillary accommodation for the main house, including a home-work space, kitchen, bathroom and guest bedrooms.

 

The new functions are contained within a series of free standing white timber boxes to the west end, leaving two-thirds of the original double-height volume intact.

 

The existing modern steel frame is utilised to support a new roof structure without distributing the extra load onto the historic walls. As part of the first phase of works, a new wood-burning boiler was installed in an adjacent outbuilding to provide heating and hot water for both the main Farm House and converted barn.
