Zac Monro plans listed Sussex barn refurbishment

  • Comment

Zac Monro Architects has revealed images for its proposed rehabilitation of a dilapidated Grade II-listed barn on a farm in West Sussex

The scheme in Cuckfield, which has been submitted for planning to Mid Sussex District Council, would see the retention of the threshing floor of the 1700s barn and an extension to create a new family home.  

The site is within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

The listed barn’s door openings, threshing partition and interior volume would be retained and the open space used as a communal area by the family. The home’s kitchen, dining room and bedrooms would be set within a modern extension that uses a lot of glass.  

Principal architect Zac Monro said: ‘It’s basically taking cues from the existing barn, cues from the agricultural architecture that’s there already and the local vernacular to make something that belongs there; that doesn’t compromise either on the level of comfort, the sustainability or the forward-thinkingness of the design.’
