This unusually large oak-framed barn was converted from former agricultural use to provide staff accommodation, an office, and spa. The original timber frame was repaired and strengthened where necessary in accordance with good conservation practice. The framing of the glass gable wall had to be repaired ensuring limited deflection compatible with the glazing.
The new accommodation was constructed within and independent of the original building. A reinforced concrete semi basement was formed to provide adequate headroom beneath the original timber trusses for the two storey office and spa. The basement was formed within a ‘box’ of sheet piling to avoid undermining the relatively shallow foundations of the original barn
The building is now Grade II listed.
