[FIRST LOOK] Essex-based Annabel Brown Architects has completed this conversion of a derelict barn into a new home
A new structure was built inside the stone walls of the existing agricultural block and features large timber framed openings overlooking a private courtyard.
A new roof was constructed on the barn, with mezzanine levels in the children’s bedrooms. The house in Sussex has underfloor heating through out.
Practice founder Annabel Brown said: ‘The client bought a derelict stone agricultural building with planning permission for conversion to a ‘cottage’ style home.
‘We challenged this with a more modern proposal playing homage to the agricultural aesthetic. Slot openings were made in the existing stone walls and original building was extended to add further enclosure to the outdoor area.’
