New Build, High Weald
Conversion of a former livestock stable in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Working within the footprint of the existing stable building, the proposal seeks to retain the agricultural character of the building whilst creating light and spacious accomodation.
Internally, living and primary circulation spaces make use of the full height of the building, whilst ancillary uses are contained within a central zone, set in from the perimeter walls, with bedrooms at first floor level. This ensures only a small increase to the existing volume which minimises the visual impact on the AONB.
The external appearance of the building reflects the materiality of the original stable block. The clay tiled roof is retained within a new cedar skin that will grey over time to sit comfortably alongside the existing farm buildings.
