Project Detail

Hall Farm Barns

Small Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2014 Finalist

Hall Farm Barns is a conversion of formerly derelict agricultural barns adjacent to Hall Farm on the edge of Scraptoft village.

With a very highest specification and offering impressive rural views, the conversion was designed with minimal additional extensions to retain the relationship of the barns and their fold yard.

The conversions are energy efficient, with near zero utility costs by the subtle use of solar and photovoltaic panels, air source heat pumps and underfloor heating.

Project Overview

The Hall Farm Barns project has brought back into use a group of derelict buildings, creating two dwellings of high value and quality.

Key to the project’s feasibility was gaining maximum value from the site through careful planning of the spaces, high quality finishes and the appeal of low running costs.

The existing structure retained –brickwork, concrete columns, steel bracing, etc – was carefully renovated and now sits in tactile contrast with the new.

The sensitive renovation retained existing openings and materials, while incorporating new elements which add interest and breaks in the large open spaces of the barns, including fireplaces and new curved internal walls.

One material used to achieve the environmental aims of the scheme is EcoDecking’s ‘eco-tiles’ made from recycled camera film.
