ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2017

Project Detail

The Tithe Barn, Cosby

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2017 Finalist

The food service counter and interior of the barn was sensitively designed to be in keeping with the heritage of one of the oldest buildings in Cosby.

The new English courtyard garden replaces a tarmac yard and a new boundary wall and crafted oak-framed Lychgate enhance the Conservation Area and the setting of the neighbouring church of St Michael and All Angels.

Traditional construction and craftsmanship methods were used in making the oak-framed Lychgate, which included hand jointing and reclaimed Swithland slates for its roof canopy.

The scheme has brought an important heritage building into public use and the landscape-led project integrates the barn into its surroundings.

Project Overview

The Tithe Barn was carefully transformed into a new deli-cafe business in the village of Cosby, offering a high-quality place to eat, drink and socialise.

A Grade II listed building dating to the 15th century, the former Coates Barn is an oak cruck and boxed frame building with a traditional thatched roof.

The barn and grounds were lovingly and sympathetically converted to the new deli-café, whilst minimising alterations to the original features. The thatch roof was restored and cleaned and a new stone floor laid.
