This was a lovely barn conversion and extension. The client is also a builder, and made a really good job of the final building. I raised the wall head of this existing stone barn and set the timber back to create a nice sectional detail with an overhanging standing seam roof. There was a glazed link between new and old to clearly define the two annexes. It had a mezzanine living floor and as the design developed the small studio was reduced in size and the overhead gable end was glazed to look out across the view.
This scheme was for an affordable housing scheme in Bangor. It had limited access and required certain amount of parking while keeping the main frontage to the street in line with the rest of the buildings, and respecting the church on the neighbouring property. I sought to use appropriate materials that were relevant to the area and respectful of the previously demolished school building on the site.
This was a large retail conversion and refurbishment project in the town of Bangor, into offices and associated accommodation. It was an interesting project to design, with plenty of level changes, existing structure and natural daylight and ventilation to overcome.
Small Residential Extension
This client required an overhaul of their interior layout and a couple of additional extensions to upgrade and improve the external appearance and use of the building.
