Arts & Crafts farmhouse, Hampshire
A new house constructed on an existing farm complex, which contained several, run down agricultural buildings that were out of character with the area. The new farmhouse is a traditional design in the Arts and Crafts style, which incorporates an existing barn into the fabric of the house. Respecting building traditions of the local area, it uses timber casement windows, dormers, clay tiles and brick and flint panels, with all materials locally sourced and of a high quality. The new house is smaller than the original complex, reducing the impact upon the surrounding countryside. With its detailed landscape and management proposals, the new scheme regenerates the site and enhances its countryside setting.
