Kingston Barn Conversion
Friday 8th November 2019
The Grade II Listed barn was featured in the RIBA Conservation Book. Listed buildings are a challenge where quality and fine detail are paramount.
Rider Sale Architects carefully designed scheme persuaded the Planning Authority to allow a linked extension which was the key to meeting the accommodation brief. The metal roof was replaced with longstraw thatching which attracted a fact-finding visit from the local Conservation Department.
Windows were carefully placed to retain the main elevations in the barn like appearance. The old barn now contains two bedrooms and a dramatic open plan dining/kitchen area while the new timber-frame building contains two more bedrooms and a living room. The construction was completed in twelve months.
