Bath Farmhouse

Lansdown, 2015

 

The existing Grade II listed stone barns are located behind a historic woodland on the outskirts of Bath. Previously a dairy farm dating back to the 17th century, the agricultural buildings were abandoned and lay derelict for several years until the core of the farmstead was converted to a dwelling in the early 1990s.

The proposal is to extend the house by reconstructing the north and south barns that were previously removed. This would provide additional accommodation including a double-height open plan living area, guest bedrooms and leisure spaces. The existing house will also be comprehensively remodelled to restore its previous scale and character. Situated within the Greenbelt, the new sensitively designed buildings make reference to the agricultural setting and combine both traditional and contemporary materials and detailing.
