Planning & Design Practice recently secured planning permission for a barn conversion within the Amber Valley Borough. The barn was starting to become weaker, with one wall on the rear elevation beginning to crumble and a steel bracing holding the two main walls firmly in an upright position.
We were approached by the client to prepare designs for the conversion of the building to create an aspirational dwelling in this highly sought-after location. An RIBA Chartered Practice, our approachable and experienced team is comprised of architects, architectural assistants, designers and technicians, who offer a comprehensive design service from concept through to completion.
After a number of sketch scheme ideas, we decided on a design to maximise the space and comfortability of the building. The barn will be converted into a 2-bedroom dwelling including one with an ensuite. We also decided that the dilapidated timber extension could be demolished and re-built on the same footprint to add a contemporary touch to the barn, whilst retaining an agricultural feel.
The application achieved planning consent with minimal complications. Approval was granted in November 2018.
We believe that good design is a crucial part of the planning process. Getting the design of a project right is critical to gaining a successful planning consent and avoiding unnecessary delay and costs.
Our team of RIBA Chartered Architects and Architectural Assistants have a wealth of experience working with homeowners, developers and the public sector.
