About This Project

Kartre worked with the client through the planning process which was very lengthy due to satisfying the local authorities policy on the building ability to be converted and objections from some local residents, but with perseverance by the Client and ourselves, the project had the go ahead. It was a challenge as it was a derelict barn at the top of the field without any services (water or electric) on the site.


The character of the old barn was retained as much as possible but introducing a contemporary edge. Old and new can work side by side together resulting in an impressive finish. The views are amazing from this property, therefore, the windows were carefully designed to optimise this feature. An air source heat pump and underfloor heating were installed in this project resulting in a cost effective system with a consistent temperature. The design, product sourcing and sub-contractors were all managed by Kartre and the project was completed on time and within budget.


An extension was soon realised in the form of a sun room and utility room. The sun room providing that all important view of the beautiful surroundings and the utility room is a very practical space. In order not to confuse old and new, the majority of the structure is glass with a green grass roof.
