This interior architecture project repurposes a typical derelict uplands Pennine barn to make a modern, sustainable home. Using local materials, suppliers and craft, it provides a showcase for regional excellence and building re-use: very much ‘made in Yorkshire’. The architect tackled architecture, interiors, furniture and detail design. The result is a new family dwelling within a hamlet rooted in the Yorkshire landscape. The heart of the house is anchored around the framed views out to the valley beyond but also around the kitchen and living spaces. Both the architecture and interiors have been designed cohesively, with simple, warm, sustainable and robust materials.
