A 200m2 steel frame barn had remained underused for a number of years and the client made the decision to appoint Design Studio Architects to carry out a contemporary barn conversion which had a similar architectural language and material selection of the main house. Set in the outskirts of Leicestershire’s rolling countryside the building sits on 6 acres of land with uninterrupted views out.
The conversion and extension of the barn created a number of spaces including a gymnasium, cinema room, bar, guest bedroom with en-suite facilities and pool table room. The existing barn fabric was insulated and finished with cedar boarding and white render. New aluminium windows and sliding patio doors to the south façade completed the contemporary architectural style to meet the clients brief and aspirations.
A great use of a redundant barn, creating a leisure space for the main dwelling.
