Our challenge was to transform a traditional derelict Cotswold farm site and produce a beautiful family home.
The existing form and layout of the barn has been retained, with each stable bay providing a single bedroom & family bathroom. Access is via a central open plan space, running along one side of the barn, throughout the building. The external facade has been wrapped in a new natural stone wall, in sympathy with the local surroundings. New vaulted cranked steels support clerestory windows, bringing in light and providing extensive views from around the property.
The building comprises of 4 double bedrooms, a family bathroom and 2 en-suites. A separate snug/TV room, a utility, plus a spacious open plan living space that extends to include the kitchen and dining room. 3 slimline sliding doors open from this living space onto the patio and garden.
The stylish zinc metal roof is a key feature and in keeping with the agricultural feel.
