This multi-phased scheme involved a series of enhancements to rationalise and refurbish a grade II listed farmhouse and outbuilding in a conservation area. The farmhouse had been subject to several additions and alterations over a number of years.
Our proposal sought to sympathetically improve the existing farmhouse by co-ordinating contemporary and traditional additions and replacements. This included an improved entrance porch and sympathetic contemporary extension to meet the demands of modern family life.
The outbuilding has been designed to restore the original farmyard character of the site. The intention also being to reinstate the connection between the house and the outbuilding, along with an improved material palette that’s more sensitive to the character of the farmhouse, and careful landscaping between the two.
Being situated on 1.8 acres, the clients were keen to address the diversification of the site wide habitats. Working alongside a garden and landscape designer to create a strategy of planting to improve the biodiversity of the site.
The clients also worked with an interior designer to bring the interior character of the buildings to life.
