Refurbished WorkshopCurry Rivel, Somerset
O2i Design refurbished this old workshop to create a yoga and creative studio. Our team designed the new space and gained statutory approvals to create a lovely creative space. Low carbon features have been integrated into the building’s fabric with recycled materials and a reed bed water treatment system, enabling this workshop to be as sustainable as possible. The scheme uses local materials and high-tech glazing blended with modern, innovative, green materials such as high-grade, self-finished Oriented Strand Board (OSB) tongue & groove. The OSB panels are energy-efficient and carbon negative.
This space was shortlisted for several awards, including Finalist in the Sustain Awards 2012 (Biodiversity Category) | Finalist in South West Built Environment Awards 2012 (Sustainability Category) | and Winner of the Green Apple Awards 2012 (Architectural Heritage Category).
This project has recently been sold. O2i Design Ltd helped the new owners convert this yoga studio into a lovely single-storey home. You can read more about the newly converted farm building here.
