Listed Barn Conversion

Somerset Levels

When Duncan and Andrea began work on their listed barn conversion, they wanted a home that reflected their commitment to sustainability. O2i Design Ltd created a contemporary home amidst a courtyard of listed barns.

To ensure financial commitments were manageable, work has been phased in three separate packages.  Specialist contractors completed extensive remedial work to the structure before work could begin internally. A palette of white, grey, timber and polished concrete finish off the look. A ground-source heat pump, ground-mounted solar panels, heavy insulation, energy-efficient hybrid glazing, and underfloor heating all contribute to making the property as energy efficient as possible.

The barn is a light, contemporary, open-plan house that has kept the essential character and charm of the original building. Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine featured this renovation in their February 2018 issue.
