Barn Conversion in Oxfordshire
TWO-STOREY BARN CONVERSION ON A SECLUDED COUNTRY HOUSE ESTATE IN OXFORDSHIRE.
Within this country house estate in Oxfordshire, the residential family were living in the main house with their staff. They also had family overseas who would often visit and stay for periods of time. To accommodate everyone, they wanted to ensure they had space and privacy for themselves, their staff, and guests.
CREATING MORE SPACE AND PRIVACY
To give the family more space for guests to visit, HNB were contracted to convert their empty barn into beautiful living quarters for their staff. This would give everyone more privacy and make better use of the space.
LIGHT, AIRY AND FUNCTIONAL SPACE
For the barn conversion, we created a beautiful, cosy, and functional space for the staff. We added internal walls to the barn to create the desired layout, along with insulation to help to create a unique and calm space for the staff to relax and unwind in.
As with many of our country house estate projects, the views are spectacular, and the air is so clean and fresh. Because of this, creating light and airy rooms is a must. In the new staff area of the converted barn, we incorporated large floor-to-ceiling windows. These large windows are featured in both downstairs and upstairs rooms, highlighting the impressive views and embracing natural light.
The project was started just before lockdown. However, because of the nature of the work and the fact that it was predominantly outdoor work, we were still able to continue with minimal disruption. This means that the overall project, including delays, was completed in a little over eight months. We finished this project ahead of programme, which was great for everyone involved. Our client was thrilled and has been able to make the most of their new space in recent years.
