ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2022

Project Detail

The Old Barn, Laughton

Small Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2022 Finalist

The conversion of an agricultural building created a new, smaller home for a Laughton village resident of 40 years.

The building is in a prominent position at an entry to the small village, so it was important to have construction and materials in keeping with the local vernacular.

The house is predominantly timber clad with Crittall style metal windows and a standing seam roof, all combining to achieve a barn effect.

Project Overview

The clients’ wish was to move to a smaller and more manageable home in the village where she has many friends.

Internally a clever use of light and layout within a smaller footprint has produced deceptively large living spaces. The home is discreetly future proofed in terms of accessibility.

Simple materials, traditional lines and a soft colour palette have provided the owner with a backdrop to add her own touches to further develop a cosy and homely feel.
