A home embedded in and improving the previously intensively farmed landscape
RIBA Yorkshire Award winner 2021
ID Architecture for private client
Construction cost: undisclosed
The client, a young family, wanted to build its home on its farmland site in the the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of National Beauty, close to a Scheduled Ancient Monument. This dictated a successful Paragraph 55 application. The simple above ground barn form follows the agricultural language in the area with a projecting master bedroom pod reaching towards the Bronze Age barrow in the valley. The barn sits on the below ground concrete plinth forming the entrance and subterranean living spaces. An extensive scheme of landscaping, local orchard planting, wildflower meadows and tree planting help to create a home embedded in and improving the previously intensively farmed landscape.
