The brief for this project was to create a 5 bed, luxury home. Featuring a games room/ cinema room, sun lounge as well as a large open plan kitchen dining living space that made the most of the views from the site.
The design retains all existing external cladding as part of the conversion (including concrete blockwork, fibre cement sheeting, timber boarding and corrugated metal sheeting).
A modest number of new openings were proposed to the north west, north east and south east elevations. The south west elevation would remain intact to preserve the building’s original character from the most visible elevation. The fenestration has been designed to have a vertical emphasis which would result in a modern quasi-agricultural conversion.
The existing steel frame would remain intact with no demolition proposed as part of the application. Some existing corrugated cladding from the rear facing lean-to projection would be stripped back but the steel frame would be retained as an open feature within the proposed garden area.
The living accommodation is arranged over 2 floors to maximise views and light in to the building.
We now have permission for this and are excited to see this project take shape on site.
