Project Description

Location:                   Aldborough, North Yorkshire

Project:                      Barn Conversion

Property type:          Grade II listed brick barn

What our clients asked for:

Conversion of barn into family home

Light-filled, open-plan living space

Sensitivity to listed buildings

What we did: 

We spent time with our Clients to understand their Brief.  In addition, we had to agree a scheme of work with English Heritage (as-was), the Local Authority planning team and ecologists – it wasn’t just our Clients who needed a new home, but a colony of bats!

As the site is designated a Scheduled Ancient Monument (Aldborough Roman Town), careful liaison with the Local Authority was key; an archaeologist was present throughout the early stages of work on site.
