We love the look of this newly converted barn conversion in Turnerspuddle, Dorchester, which we have just entered into the LABC 2017 awards in the 'Best Change of Use of an Existing Building or Conversion' category.
This conversion of a former milking parlour into a new family home was achieved with minimal intervention. It was essential to maintain the character of the building as this was one of the earliest examples of concrete blockwork used in the UK, imported into England by the family.
The existing buildings were in a poor state of repair and largely unused. This beautiful conversion now offers the clients an efficient, spacious, light home with separate rooms for the children, farm office, boot room and kennels.
The client was fully involved from the beginning of the process and sourced many items including a recycled kitchen, floor boards and doors which have enhanced the property. The client is very happy with the results.
This project has renovated and enhanced a run down buildings, preserving them for years to come and provides a highly.
