Planning for Barn Conversion Scheme

Thinking Buildings have submitted a scheme for a complex of barns in west Oxfordshire in association with Edgars Planning Consultants.

The main barn to the north edge of the site is converted and extended to provide a four-bedroom house. The single storey barns to the south east will become a guest suite and a home office, and those to the south west will provide garaging and garden storage. The courtyard between is landscaped to form a private garden, which both links and provides privacy to each of the habitable elements. 

The external treatment of the buildings is sympathetic to their existing forms, with minimal new openings proposed, and any new structures reflecting the mass and look of the existing barns. The single storey barn to the south west is currently open fronted to the courtyard, with stone pillars supporting the roof. The walls to this face are as lightweight as possible, with timber cladding and glazing to ensure the original form of the structure is still legible.

We look forward to updating you on this interesting project as it progresses.
