West Berkshire barn extension
This beautiful barn structure is set in an equally beautiful location. Our brief was to provide an extension that provided contemporary living space, without competing with the simplicity of the barn design. We used the timber weatherboarding and clay tiles in the extension to incorporate frameless glazed corners to simultaneously open up the views as well as retaining wall space for artwork. We also provided a contemporary loggia to connect the house and outbuildings, providing a covered walkway and unifying disparate elements around a kitchen garden.
Location: West Berkshire countryside
Materials: Rustic larch cladding, frameless glass and joinery made oak, pivot doors.
Clever aspects: We’ve managed to incorporate a secret hidden roof terrace that really provides panoramic views and a super spot to watch the sun go down.
Friends on the project: We worked with lots of great individual craftsmen on this project, creating something truly bespoke.
We love: The understatement of this project. The extension blends effortlessly with the barn, whilst still totally transforming the interior space and experience of living in the property.
