Nick Willson Architects has submitted plans to convert a large barn in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty into three new homes
The 861m² scheme will retain the concrete structure of the existing agricultural building on the Willinghurst Estate at Shamley Green and clad it in a new charred larch ‘veil’.
The practice’s design and access statement describes this timber structure as a ‘highly articulated screen that provides different tones and shadows throughout the day’.
A committee date has not yet been set by Waverley Borough Council.
