This project transforms a derelict barn into an artist’s studio. The design is defined by honest structural expression, patina and reclaimed materials of an agrarian nature as well as local handmade ones, employed with contemporary detailing. Recognition of simple functionality is inherent. Structurally the existing brick shell is elegantly infilled with a braced timber frame acting as stilts for the upper floor and roof, braced with Corten weathering steel. A rare arch headed window with lapped glazing has been preserved.
