PROJECT OVERVIEW

An extensive 19th Century farm complex set in a 58 acre site in the middle of Dartmoor National park.

GSL were tasked with the partial demolition and complete renovation of the farmhouse, adjacent barns and outbuildings, to create an idyllic contemporary dwelling in stunning landscaped grounds.

PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

In collaboration of old and new techniques this project utilised lime mortars and reclaimed stone and bricks, together with sophisticated glazing treatments and intelligent mood lighting management. A “Sky Frame” glazing system formed a transparent structure linking the original buildings. The oak framed upper barn was given a patinated zinc roof to reference its agricultural heritage.

The project came in a remarkable 17% under budget.

“At the start of the project I said that we were bound to fall out at some point. You said that we would not. You won hands down. Let’s try and find another project soon.”
