location: Near Truro, Cornwall
Little Lambriggan is a project that renovates an existing granite barn and extends it to create a family home on farmland on the outskirts of Truro in mid-Cornwall.
The design carefully restores the barn to provide 3 double bedrooms, and links to a long, low open plan living, kitchen and dining space with a separate snug and office, plus a play room tucked beneath the roof.
The form of the new building is simple, with a palette of natural materials including slate, stone and timber cladding. The living spaces open out onto a west facing terrace with far reaching views across the valley.
The building secured planning approval in February 2017 and will start on site later in the year.
