Morlands Farm, a converted Dutch barn in West Sussex, previously open sided now clad in corrugated steel to retain its agricultural industrial aesthetic.
The conversion places sleeping and home office accommodation on the ground floor, reserving the vaulted upper storey for a large open plan living space with elevated views across the gardens.
The aim was to make a dwelling that is clearly legible as a former agricultural building in the landscape, with corrugated metal cladding used in conjunction with sliding metal shutters in reference to traditional agricultural building elements.
The project was awarded an RIBA South East Award in 2022 and named RIBA South East Small Project of the Year.
Our Oak, White Oiled, 220mm, prime grade band sawn finish was used for flooring, stair treads and risers.
