Design of a new build Residential Barn & Basement, fusing traditional design with modern comforts & sustainable technology
Situated in West Malling, the site is located with the hear of an existing farm away from neighboring properties, presenting the opportunity to create a design that is unique & exciting.
The client set us the brief of designing their dream home; a barn residence in the style of a barn conversion with a subterranean basement that will merge traditional design & materials with open-plan living suited to a modern lifestyle.
With rolling fields in every direction, the early emphasis is to make the most of the surrounding landscape by framing views, & in return, allowing natural light to flood the internal spaces. The materials palette will also form a link to the context of the site, using natural woods & Kent ragstone; In orientation, form & material, the design will be heavily influenced by its surroundings.
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.’
