Dutch Barn ConversionHigh Ham, Somerset
O2i Design Ltd designed the conversion of a redundant Dutch barn into holiday accommodation. This Dutch barn conversion is one of only a few of this type in the South West. It has generated much interest from visitors. The building stays true to the aesthetic of the original building and agricultural setting.
Curved timber roof trusses replace the barrel-vaulted roof. A local timber supplier manufactured bespoke trusses. Ply sheets helped create the correct continuous curve. The zinc roof panels were formed off-site. They give a streamlined appearance to the roof whilst keeping the agricultural feel. The result is a roof that perfectly suits the building form and was cost-effective and quick to install.
Locally sourced vertical timber provides the building cladding and specialist timber and aluminium Rationel windows offer a low-maintenance, high-performance glazing solution.
This agricultural barn is now a fabulous contemporary home, available for rental.
