Type: Barn Conversion, Office DevelopmentCompletion: 2006Client: The Duke of Somerset Estate
This conversion of a redundant barn was aimed to provide high quality office buildings following the success at its neighbouring location Waterside. The existing buildings was characterised by a strong line of stone piers and dramatically sloping eaves. The conversion combined exposed galvanised steel with boarded infill panels to give a robust, almost agricultural feel, befitting it surrounding rural landscape. The whole building is set off by a dramatic glass front to define this traditional building as a contemporary place of work.
