Planning Permission for listed barn conversion!

A’Bear and Ball Architects LLP are pleased to have obtained Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent from Swindon Borough Council for the conversion of a detached stone barn to a single high quality contemporary 3 bedroom residential dwelling in Hannington, near Highworth.

The barn is close to the Listed Farmhouse on the site and therefore demanded a very sensitive design approach. The scheme involves the conversion of the stone barn plus the addition of a sizeable extension (master bedroom suite) connected back to the end gable wall of the existing structure with a lightweight glazed link. A zinc roof is proposed along with significant areas of frameless glass set behind the existing timber posts allowing the original primary structure to be left visually exposed.
