Design of a new build Residential Barn fusing traditional design with modern comforts & sustainable technology
Situated on the outskirts of West Malling, the site is located on a farm away from neighbouring properties, presenting the opportunity to create a design that is unique & exciting.
The client set us the challenge of delivering their dream home; a residence in the style of a classic rural barn that will merge traditional design & materials with open-plan and modern technology.
With rolling fields in every direction, the early emphasis was to make the most of the surrounding landscape by framing views, & in return, allowing natural light into the building bathing rooms in sunshine. The materials palette has also been inspired by the location, combining oak & Kent ragstone using traditional techniques local to the area.
From the Designer, ‘With a project such as this, it is important to gain an understanding of the parameters as early as possible; planning wise, spatially, & financially. With this, we have tailored our service to suit the requirement of the client, starting with an in-depth site appraisal testing the viability of the scheme before the design stage can commence.’
‘Still, in the preliminary stage, this project has the potential to create something truly special.’
