Farmhouse Conversion


Background

This fine Grade 2 Listed farmhouse has been extended many times over the years. The brief was to remodel the interior space to make it more suitable for contemporary living and to increase its green and sustainability credentials.

Design

Following a detailed historical analysis, we have opened up some of the interior space to form larger open plan areas, and integrated sustainable technologies including a hot water storage tank fuelled by solar panels and wood stove heating. Many of the original elements of the facade and the internal roof structure have been restored.

Technical

Natural materials such as Green Oak, Lime plaster, timber and stone, along with distemper paints were used throughout the restoration and remodelling, in sympathy with the original structure.
