Conversion to residential accommodation.
A range of existing stables and outbuildings are to be consolidated into a cluster of new houses. On this sensitive historic site within designated Greenbelt land, it was important to maintain the essential agricultural character of original farm buildings and minimise visual impact upon the open countryside.
Reorganisation centres around an existing courtyard. The yard is to be extended, enabling all parking, maneuvering and access from within. This strategy is intended to conceal servicing, and so enable the outer perimeter to be retained as open green space.
New extensions are created through extruding simple roof lines of the existing stable buildings. New gables are to be built in reclaimed stone, whilst all other new elements are simple and contemporary.
