This unique project utilised a specialist planning route that enables the creation of new homes in rural locations, where development is typically severely restricted.
This project consisted of the residential conversion of an existing steel frame barn which had been in agricultural use for 10+ years.
The relatively modern barn’s steel structure meant that design opportunities for conversion were far more flexible than could have been achieved with a traditional red brick barn. This enabled the design to be far more contemporary in style, layout and form, as you can see!
Our involvement on this particular project included:
– Undertaking a measured building survey of the existing structure and converting this into a 3D CGI model
– Undertaking initial feasibility exercises considering how the building could be converted
– Consideration towards initial design options that complied with the requirements of Class Q
– Liaison and engagement with external consultants on behalf of our client
– Procurement, management and submission of a formal planning application to the local authority.
The results have yielded a unique and beautiful family home with a striking yet sympathetic form of architecture.
