Ludgate Barn

Aspirational Design

Situated in the Green Belt of Newgate Street Village, we have proposed a complete re-build for this exciting residential home, which still references the old corrugate barn building it replaces.

Ludgate Barn

What We Did

With a brief to “use our imagination” on this luxury residential new build, we have retained the agricultural ‘feel’ with the choice of build materials.

We have designed a unique balcony on the first floor and positioned windows throughout to maximise the stunning views of the beautiful surrounding countryside.

The ground floor will provide living space at each end of large, bespoke glazed gables and a ‘curtain walling’ feature to the entrance hall. Bedrooms will be positioned on the first floor.
