Home Farm Barn, Ayot St Peter

Sensitive restoration of listed barn

This virtually derelict listed barn was fully restored to create a contemporary three bedroom / three bathroom rental cottage within the original reclad timber frame, which was left exposed internally.
A cantilevered timber staircase and a suspended glass bridge link the first-floor bedrooms across a dramatic full height living space.

The restored barn now complements the setting of the adjacent 18th Century farmhouse which the practice has also been involved in modernizing and extending.

“Louis de Soissons listened very carefully to our brief and developed it into a beautifully practical and stylish conversion.”
