Designing Farm Conversions

Barn Conversion, Eccleston, Chester

The Eaton Estate at Chester, like so many rural estates around the country, is host to a variety of traditional farm buildings that no longer have a viable agricultural use. Located within a conservation area, this attractive, small range of stables, pig stys and feed store had languished empty or underused for a considerable period when we were asked in 2011 to see if the building could be converted sympathetically to provide thoroughly modern office space for a prestige investment business.

The principle was firmly supported by the Local Plan Policy and the Council's planning and conservation teams were pleased with our low-key and consistent conservation approach to the detailing of the scheme.
