Scheme: West Oak Farm
Practice: Spence and Dower LLP
Client: Hallyards Developments (NE) Ltd

The scheme makes four dwellings out of an old farm and sets new standards for the re-use of derelict agricultural buildings in the region. Historic accretions to the farm buildings have been stripped away and the new lightweight structures with timber panelling and metal roofs have been well integrated. The forms of the new buildings echo a modern industrial aesthetic and are robustly detailed. The interiors make the most of their south-facing aspect whether looking into courtyards or onto open countryside.
