Barn Conversions

Turning agricultural buildings into luxury homes.

With permitted development rules relaxed in recent years, it has become increasingly viable to convert old agricultural structures into homes and dwellings. Our extensive experience ranges from converting smaller outbuildings to workspace and guest accommodation, to more ambitious contemporary and luxury homes. See the case study below for an example of one such project. From the outset, we can provide advice and suggestions to help inform your project.

Case Study: Motcombe Barn

An amazing opportunity to take a steel frame barn and turn it into a modern contemporary house.

The initial challenge was to use only materials that would be found on such a structure to produce a home where our clients did not feel like they were living in a steel frame barn.

This project is full of amazing designs and material: large landscape windows, an enclosed winter garden with a glass roof surrounded by a timber glazed screen, polished concrete floors, open living spaces, carefully planned bathrooms and bespoke furniture and fittings.

One the challenges of the build was to bring power onto the plot - a challenge that was overcome with a solar panel installation.

You can learn more about the building, and see more of its construction, in this video produced by Victron Energy.

"Ours was a build out of the ordinary and yet Armacre took us from start to finish with focus and drive provided by a great bunch of individuals, helping us to achieve a result that is truly beyond our expectations."
