Works Near Completion on Extension to Converted Barn in AONB
Modern Barn Extension
HPA are proud of their work on Lanshaw Farm in creating a modern, accessible extension in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Our clients wanted us to create a space that took advantage of the distant views to the Lake District, Ingleborough and the Bowland Fells but took into account the vernacular construction and historic significance of the barn which is in the curtilage of a Grade II Listed Building Lanshaw Farmhouse.
The extension juxtaposes the 18th century barn and reads as a sensitive but dynamic addition to the barn conversion. We modelled the barn in 3D using CAD software and traditional hand sketches in order to get the adjoining geometry just right so that it read as a piece of the former barn. We worked closely with the engineer to maximise the spans of structure to allow for a clear open view and the great expanse of glass.
The solid masonry northern wall made from reclaimed sandstone to match the existing barn has slot windows, providing a visual link to the entrance of the house. A narrow clerestory window at the junction of the masonry northern wall and the oversailing roof allows evening light to wash over the ceiling of the new room, whilst maintaining a sense of enclosure and privacy for users. The roof over sails to provide protection over the entrance doors so guests have a sense of arrival and shelter from the prevailing winds.
