This fabulous barn conversion has given the building a new lease of life for a modern family…
This fabulous barn conversion was in need of a real lift. Our clients wanted to update the whole property from a dated, tired space to an impressive, welcoming home, to live in and enjoy with friends and family. They loved the vintage, industrial look and were keen to introduce this style into their home without it becoming too stylised and over themed. They also wanted a touch of quirkiness- which is our speciality!
The barn itself was a great inspiration to the design and we love taking cues from the architecture of a building when looking to design the interior. We wanted to retain the heritage of the building, looking at the natural materials; including wood, metal, stone and slate; the use of which which gave a texture and depth to the scheme. Some key features of our design were to leave the stainless steel extractor vent visible in the kitchen and keep the metal trunking, containing the power cables, exposed on the brick walls. We are fortunate enough to have a fabulous antiques market local to our studio, so we sourced a lot of the furniture from here; including the old Singer sewing machine base, complete with foot pedal, which we had made into a unique table. As a personal finishing touch, we had the ‘Mornington Crescent’ tube station sign made as this was previously where they had once lived.
