A farm house in Uttoxter took into consideration existing building style. It is sympathetic in design and material. The design approach has been to mirror the existing 19th Century elevation at the rear. This produced a uniform facadem, with all materials and openings matching as already existed. Meanwhile, in Bulgaria, we undertook the complete conservation of the house. This included some modern additions and removal of concrete render. Our expert team surveyed the building. Then using local reference and original materials we liaised closely with a skilled local contractor. This ensured work was carried out to a high conservation standard.
Another project saw us create a proposal for a listed barn conversion that took into consideration the buildings agricultural history. Taking care to utilise all existing openings, as they were and are. The original listing description gives a detailed analysis of the barn shape and form. We have adhered to this almost entirely; retaining the original structure. The proposal is sympathetic in design. All work was undertaken to match the existing material, proportion and scale.
