Poplar Dutch Barn, South Gloucestershire

Dutch barn conversion with an eco twist

What was once a cowshed, complete with asbestos and steel frame, is now a spectacular eco home. We worked through complex existing contracts to enable a change of use from agricultural to residential, whilst the original footprint had to be maintained due to local planning restrictions and associated greenbelt planning requirements. The home includes U-valves that far exceed building regulation requirements, a biomass waste wood boiler for heating and water, and the structure itself is clad in beautiful French Green Oak.
