Contemporary barn conversion in Herefordshire
This project represented a Contemporary barn conversion in Herefordshire with a difference. The existing building was too small to meet the requirements of the client, as a family home. Whilst extensions to Listed agricultural buildings are strongly discouraged in local planning policy, following comprehensive research of historic evidence and detailed site investigations, the extension was justified.
The site investigations revealed that there had previously been an extension supported by a metal truss, fabricated with hot rivets. This investigation and discovery, along with the supporting justification, was enough evidence for the Conservation Officer to agree to its reinstatement.
