This sensitive barn conversion was part of a split farmstead comprising existing cow housing and a hay barn.
Dickinson Waugh were commissioned to convert these significant buildings into a dwelling of the highest order.
In addition to providing the client with a spectacular living environment, the challenge with barn conversions is to protect the features, settings, cultural significance and wildlife interest of a traditional farm building combined with the paradox of making what is in essence a breathable building, thermally efficient without damaging original building fabric.
Traditional farm buildings contribute to local distinctiveness and to countryside character, by utilising these buildings we conserve the environmental capital embodied in traditional farm building stock by promoting their sustainable long-term use.
Dickinson Waugh have considerable experience and expertise in this area of architecture.
