Interior design for a Class Q barn conversion

Initial concept ideas for this contemporary conversion

We looked at the organisation and development of interior spaces of this steel framed barn as part of a wider investigation into the viability of its conversion under class Q permitted development.

We developed three options based on initial sketch plans provided by the client at the start of the project. We felt that a clean and simple aesthetic was the most suitable approach to the interior design of this home, ensuring good quality of daylight reaches all parts of the space.

The use of a limited palette of hardwearing but tactile materials ensures the spaces were refined and elegant but still felt homely and informal. Flooring materials such as polished concrete or timber ensure a hard wearing finish that will suit the proportions of the building.

The double height volume of the barn is exploited wherever possible, creating long views through the building and into the landscape beyond and giving reference to the building’s original form. Additionally, the inclusion of internal glazed screens enables visual connectivity whilst providing acoustic separation between spaces.
