About this project

A radical approach was required for this converted barn sited in open countryside. As the previous conversion had been so poor, we decided to demolish the building and using the salvaged stonework, start again with the addition of two new wings and a swimming pool. The design of the main barn and the decision to create the 9m high single space created exciting architectural drama. The structural elements were green oak with an oak boarded ceiling to give a sense of warmth to the large space and a large contemporary fireplace was also designed in proportion to the space. Throughout, the pallet of materials used internally was kept simple: Cotswold stone floors, oak floors, beams, doors and ceilings and white painted plasterwork. The energy to run the under-floor heating is created by ground source heat pumps buried in adjacent land
