Barn Conversion in Herefordshire

This beautiful Barn conversion in Herefordshire, adds to KODA architects portfolio of barn conversions. The former farmstead dates from the late 18th Century and originally used as a milking parlour for the farms head of cattle.  At the height of the farms prosperity, the main farmhouse had a number of ancillary buildings of which included a mill and several larger threshing barns. However, as farmi became more industrialised, the farmhouse was sold into residential usage and late 20th Century the barn was linked to the main house. The barn however, was largely unusable as it was cold, suffering from damp and limiting it to a store area. 

Following an appraisal of the existing building, it was quickly found that the main gable wall was leaning outwards and should be rebuilt. To find a solution to the issue KODA architects worked closely with the client in reimagining the barn into a new living space with views over private garden and pond.

This barn conversion in Herefordshire uses traditional green oak framing with a contemporary glazed link between the rebuilt stone wall and the next extension, something that was welcomed by planners. The natural materials pallet allows the extension to sit comfortably within its surroundings and maintains the historic building as the dominant asset. The extension is flooded with natural light and able to be used throughout the year. The large bi folding doors allows integration between the garden and sunroom spaces.

KODA worked closely with contractors who specialise in working at traditional green oak frames and heritage buildings. Wye Oak Timber Framing have good deal of experience within and this barn conversion in Herefordshire, adds to their list of barn conversions completed successfully. The build programme onsite was reduced as the main frame was prefabricated in the contractors workshop.
