Newton Architects reveals PPS7 farmhouse conversion

  • 1 Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Newton Architects has unveiled these images of its low carbon project to revamp a disused farm building in Northumberland

A planning application was submitted in August to convert a series of historic farm buildings, known as The Paise, into a ‘zero carbon’ home featuring a glazed courtyard and triple-height entrance hall.

The proposal ‘integrates landscape and architecture in a seamless way appropriate for concerns of the 21C,’ according to the practice.

Newton Architects was chosen from a shortlist of ten practices for the job.

Regional design review body, Ignite, said: ‘The scheme is unique and the “stealth” building blends into the surrounding landscape, alongside the cluster of existing farmhouse buildings.

‘The Panel welcomes this wonderful concept and would encourage the design team to follow this design philosophy.’

The Newcastle-based studio last month bagged the Public Building prize at the annual Retrofit Awards for its Whitfield C of E School project, also in Northumberland.

A planning committee date for the application has yet to be confirmed.

  • Looks fantastic but I'd worry about the kids falling off the roof...
