Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire
The conversion of a large agricultural barn, built within Class Q planning regulations to a high specification and focusing on long-term sustainability.
Crinan Barn is a contemporary take on the original Dutch barn it was created from. It features matt black aluminium and shadow gap timber cladding, concrete floors and glazed ends, which maximise the fabulous views.
Credited with the same low carbon standards as its eco-award-winning neighbour Mayfield Barn, every step was taken to ensure minimal heat loss and the lowest possible carbon footprint. Plans were by HollandGreen architects, with creative design by Last Interior Design, bespoke furnishing by Barr Joinery and kitchen/utility by Barr Kitchens.
““A sensitive conversion of a steel-framed hay barn into a contemporary family home. Concrete floors and profiled steel faces nod to the original concrete-based barn””
