The Wing Barn Conversion

Project: Barn Conversion
Title: The Wing Barn
Location: Leigh on Mendip, Somerset
Client: Private
A traditional Somerset barn with side wings converted into residential accommodation.  The integrity of the original barn winged section was kept and used as an interesting shape to create a modern contemporary dwelling with glazed corners. Bedroom were created with the introduction of a first floor without the need to increase the height of the existing roof. Reusing the existing stone and roof tiles both saved costs and is seen as in keeping with the local vernacular. Contemporary aluminium windows and doors and roofing are part of the agricultural tradition of iron windows and corrugated tin roofs. Internal wall insulation, roof and floor insulation provides a warm modern home with heating enhance by PV roof panels.
