A grade II listed barn is among seven derelict agricultural outbuildings that have been amalgamated into a five bedroom dwelling plus further accommodation. The home weaves through three of the main structures, built of brick or timber frame, each taking a different character. At the end of the main barn, the timber structure is layered with a full wall of Rodeca translucent panels which allows a diffused light to enter. A polished concrete floor fuses spaces together while ensuring the agricultural connotations are preserved.
