Material-rich, contemporary aesthetic works sympathetically with agricultural heritage
RIBA Yorkshire Award winner 2021
TAS Architects for private client
Contract value: undisclosed
The client was determined to make these tumbledown farm buildings into a contemporary, sustainable family home. Restoration of the stone and brick barns, and the agricultural and historic character of the site as a whole, were at the heart of the project. Offsite manufacturing of the new steel and glass structures and traditional building methods were brought together to achieve a material-rich, contemporary aesthetic which works sympathetically with the historic buildings and pays respect to their agricultural heritage. Sustainability was a key factor in the design and specification of the conversions and new additions.
