Beech Architects are pleased to be working on an exciting conversion of a former windmill structure located n the heart of Suffolk.  The structure is currently under planning authority consideration for use as holiday let accommodation.

The structure is a mill stump constructed of brick with traditional tar coating and no longer having its sails or cap. The proposals plan to replace the cap with a contemporary installation but based on the traditional ‘inverted boat’ form, which exploits the stunning views over the Suffolk countryside and provides a fantastic living space for its visitors.

The structure offers it’s own challenges of planning and design where no internal lines offer a straight edge making the circulation strategy and use of each space an interesting prospect.

Beech Architects are also pleased to be part of the continued life of the structure, which would otherwise remain derelict, and be subject to decay without viable intervention.
