An 18th Century stone and flint barn, overwhelmed by recent steel framed outbuildings, is released and given new life as a home. The inherent character of the barn is retained, with a mezzanine threaded within the existing thresher door openings and between existing roof trusses, like a precious piece of furniture.
This divides the volume into two equal living spaces. A glazed transition space turns the outside wall into an internal hall and leads onto four bedrooms and a lower snug lounge. Views out over the countryside are framed by openings in a wrapping skin around the new accommodation.
