Penistone, United Kingdom
Site size: 3,810 square feet
Project size: 3,200 square feet
Program: A dilapidated 18-century barn renovated for a modern residence.
Location: A rural site in South Yorkshire, in northern England.
Solution: The architects inserted a second floor into the two-story-high stone barn, yet managed to keep the original sense of the open plan. Two bedrooms on the upper floor are connected by a walkway with a glass balustrade that overlooks the living and dining areas.
Construction and materials: The architects inserted a steel frame to support deteriorating walls, with a ring beam running around the perimeter of the kitchen area. Although the roof had to be replaced, most of the existing materials could be preserved including pegged oak trusses and exposed stone.
