Subverting the traditional, conservatively cozy British barn conversion,created a getaway in rural Norfolk for himself and his friends to visit, repose, and consider the beauty of agrarian minimalism.
Taking the beautiful backdrop of agricultural Norfolk, Ochre Barn is a multi purpose development. It houses a retreat, studio space and private residential accommodation. The project fuses together these different uses making the barn a place of inspiration, enjoyment and relaxation.
We have treated the Victorian brick buildings as if they were listed externally, in order to maintain their industrial character. We have worked with existing openings, setting new sliding doors back inside the wall openings to create depth and expose the existing bull nose detailing.
