The brief for the renovation of this 17th century farmhouse was to provide a contemporary family dwelling, with the aesthetic language of the new proposed works to work in careful harmony with the existing fabric, celebrating the materiality and spatial qualities of the existing structures and creating elegant links between the farmhouse and the barn.
The farmhouse enjoys a bespoke connection to the original barn structure through a sensitive, lightweight glass link which appears invisible, flooding the interior with natural light and providing a visual connection to the rustic stone of the barn which is in direct contrast with the contemporary white-washed interior. Glimpses of the steading courtyard are offered through the open tread stair, the perspective changing as you journey from the dining area up into the master suite on the first floor.
