Subsequent to the completion of a previous extension to his home, our client requested that further design work be undertaken to provide an further extension to this Grade II listed barn conversion dwelling. The open brief to provide a contemporary master bedroom suite extension has allowed us to creatively explore the opportunities of form, materiality and texture of a further contrasting addition to this collection of rural 'agricultural' buildings.
The new master bedroom suite will be dressed in charred timber cladding boards and black zinc metal sheets - a monochromatic silhouette that provides a distinct and contemporary counterpoint to the history and character of the listed barn buildings. The strong geometrical form and arrangement of openings, mimic the local rural vernacular and previous farm buildings that may have occupied the property - a piggery, shippon, tractor shed.
The master suite will be accessed via an underground link passage, providing a discreet connection to the existing home, with minimum visual and physical impact on the listed building and the Green Belt context.
