A scheme to convert a large timber barn to residential use in an interesting location adjoining the site of a listed historic Priory. The barn has been through a series of changes over time including use as a stable, a piggery, agricultural store and more recently a photography studio.
The scheme keeps the existing distinctive long, simple form of the black timber clad building without extending it. Internally the existing first floor at the western end is retained. At the Eastern end the internal structure is removed to allow a full height open space to the kitchen and dining areas.
Externally there are only very minimal changes with the alteration of some windows to allow for escape and the creation of an independent access. The existing large barn doors are retained in their current location and glass doors used behind these so as to keep the original form and appearance of the barn.
