BARN CONVERSION - COCKFIELD

This barn conversion project involves works to a Grade II Listed curtilage structure due to its proximity to the Listed farmhouse.

The existing barn is a timber frame structure sitting above a substantial flint and brick plinth, which will be retained and exposed internally where possible. The central bay of the principal barn also has an intact brick-threshing floor, which will be retained and celebrated within the design of the converted home as an original feature.

The barn takes the form of a traditional agricultural yard area with a single storey brick side wing forming a courtyard arrangement. The two structures will therefore be converted with the insertion of a new link building forming new entrance, lobby, study and utility spaces.

This link will be a contemporary addition to the range of buildings using traditional flint and brick but with a modern application and design. This area also supports a green ‘living roof’ system.  The courtyard will then form a private and sheltered formal garden space.
