The Barn, in the heart of Felsted, with it’s agricultural structure, is a timber framed weatherboarded former farmhouse from the18th Century, which has been extended and converted into a dwelling. The barn style has been retained and the large original door openings are marked by floor to ceiling areas of glazing.
From the onset, we had to establish designs that were sympathetic to the historic period of this property whilst creating a practical home for a busy young family. Our brief was to create luxury interiors that will stand the test of time and that encompass comfort, elegance and practicality.
Whilst respecting the design of the building, our aim was to create an interior that enhances the architecture. We also had to ensure that the home would satisfy the practical requirements of a young family and modern day living. Respecting the existing features and balancing with contemporary furnishings, ensured that the interior architecture is linked to the history of the property, whilst the interiors add a seamless luxury to the space. An improved layout more favourable to modern day family life and adding storage in every possible space ensured that this house will now provide a beautiful yet pragmatic home for this young family.
