We were commissioned by an existing client to produce a private residential proposal within the parameters of a redundant steading complex. The existing farm buildings were demolished and we sett out the empty site as “rooms” defined by extending walls built from the demolished stone sheds. This developed into plots with private gardens and also ensured window positions did not have over looking privacy issues. The materials combined re used stonework, red bricks, timber cladding and zinc roofs. The ridge detail was rounded and the gables extended past the walls to give an impression of a “cluster” of similar build types. After achieving a detailed planning consent the site was sold to a private developer.
