Renovation and Restoration
We purchased this derelict farm comprising a barn, cottage and outbuildings with planning permission to convert to a dwelling. We altered the permission in order to create a spacious 6,000 square foot family home. We retained the character and features of the original barn, built with the local Great Tew stone, exposed the original brick window arches, retained the original ancient beams and timber frames and landscaped the grounds to create outside living spaces and beautiful gardens.
We designed the interior architecture to be sympathetic to the original barn. We exposed the original brick where possible and added new features fashioned by local craftsmen. Internal stone arches, fireplaces and work surfaces were crafted using the local Great Tew stone. We retained the original double height barn openings to create the central living space of the home and added timber wall panelling and bespoke oak joinery.
