location: Kerrier, Cornwall
Cornish granite barns are fantastic buildings. They are solid, robust and many have stood the test of time. However, where they sometimes fall short is in providing the sort of spaces that clients often demand in order to suit modern open plan living.
This sensitive and low key extension to a Grade 2 listed barn creates open living spaces with a direct link to the established gardens around. Meanwhile, spaces that are more suited to smaller cellular rooms are kept within the barn.
The extension was completed in Spring 2017.
