West Lane Farm once formed part of 154 hectare holding. Following its subdivision into 5 lots, our client purchased 44 ha of arable farmland and associated farm buildings including two grain stores and two general purpose buildings.
Given the farm had two grain stores the modern providing storage for 800 tonnes and the land area being substantially reduced, the old grain store was surplus to requirement. The farm had no farmhouse and an application was sought to convert the barn to residential use under Part 3 Class Q of the General Permitted Development Order.
Our proposal looked to highlight the key features and compliment them with a contemporary design. Making full use of the play between light and shadow, the scheme proposed a light, open, and interesting piece of architecture that provides an enjoyable home full of personality for its owners.
