Burraton Barn

Converted in the 1980s, this barn was in need of a re-think.  The accommodation had become confused through subsequent alterations, with tight and unusable circulation spaces and rooms randomly placed across the two floors.  The essence of the barn had also been erased from the interior.

A spacious porch unlocks the ground floor allowing a generous open plan living and dining room focussed around a new hearth.  Behind the hearth a hidden stair opens up to the roof revealing the volume of the original barn, and the first floor is reorganised around a light filled and airy gallery.  These new circulation spaces give a release and contrast to the compartmentalised nature of domestic life and provide connections and glimpses to spaces beyond.  The use of timber linings and boardmarked concrete gives these spaces a gravity and stature that relate to the original structure.  Light and views are maximised through new windows and vertical oak cladding tie the additions into the agricultural setting.
