Sustainable Barn Conversion

A contemporary conversion with low environmental impact. Using modern building methods and cutting edge materials to create a sustainable home with large open spaces. Working closely with an architect in Australia and clients in Kenya, we met challenging building objectives despite the impact of conflicting time zones. Ongoing design alterations were made via frequent video calls and through a regularly updated private blog. All information and changes to the specification of the build were recorded on-site via tablet computers to ensure a digital logbook is maintained that can be accessed by all parties involved at any-point from anywhere in the world.This passive house barn conversion has been designed with a traditional soft external shell that retains the original barn features. A more modern, contemporary core, complete with clean lines and cutting edge technologies provides a comfortable living space and interesting juxtaposition with the exterior. Most of the barn is supported by large, underpinning stools that have been sensitively waterproofed to create the necessary additional height needed to comfortably accommodate both floors.
