Barn Conversion, Harrogate

Planning has recently been approved for the conversion and extension of two existing barns to form a single family dwelling on the outskirts of Harrogate. Design proposals included the introduction of a link building between the barns allowing access between the two existing structures at both ground and first floor, along with the introduction of an extension to house leisure facilities. Internally the building is being remodelled with new floors, a double height main hall and large family kitchen. The proposals look to make best use of high levels of insulation, increased air tightness and renewable technologies in order to minimise future energy costs.
