Description

Barn Extension, internal refurbishment and Garage Annex

This is a three-phase project, the first being an upgrade of the interiors to get the house ready for the clients to move in. The second is a dining room extension, porch extension, including upgrading the landscaping. The 3rd phase is additional accommodation in the garden, including a new garage with living accommodation in South Oxfordshire.

Phase One:

Our client went with our interiors package for phase one. This included designing a new ensuite bathroom, designing bespoke joinery in the master bedroom, a full dressing room, knocking through a first-floor wall to create a mezzanine level, the addition of decorative oak beams speciality light fittings and new flooring throughout.

The ensuite includes a bespoke vanity unit made from a beautiful oak slab that we sourced for our client with a bowl sink and waterfall tap above. 

Huge walk-in shower with built-in shower head and glass screen that is 14mm thick!

Distressed turquoise wardrobe doors are being sourced from french reclamation yards to get our client the wardrobe of her dreams. Photos to come!

Phase Two:

A large dining room barn extension with a fantastic new oak framed front porch entrance. Wonderfully high ceilings with plenty of light. What once was a small dark entrance is now a large open space with vaulted ceilings. We saved costs by reusing the large existing entrance door and added a chunky oak frame to emphasise the grand new entrance to this converted barn.

The whole site will be landscaped with new paving areas and segregated hard and soft landscaping that fits the South Oxfordshire vibe. We will be adding lots of greenery and planting and making sure the boundary treatments are safe for dogs!

Phase Three (update 6th June 2021):

Planning approval submitted with South Oxfordshire Council for a new garage/carport with a residential annexe for the kids. Watch this space!

    Overall great design and exceptional value for money. As a first time consumer of architectural services on what was a large project I can not emphasise enough the value add that we got from Ben, Sophie and the wider Aura team. The effort … More and detail put into the design and specification of works along with significant assistance in project management was commendable. As the project evolved it was crystal clear that we saved a significant amount of time and money as a result of having a comprehensive package and most importantly we got what we wanted on budget. Expectations were exceeded in terms of meeting deadlines. Accommodating design changes and assistance with the planning process was also first rate. I would highly recommend the team and look forward to working with them on the next project.

    Couldn't recommend Ben and his team more. We were in a really tricky position with our building project and Ben navigated us safely out of it. Superb guidance, great technical knowledge and what I really valued the most was the communication. … More Always got back to me promptly which makes a real difference when stress levels are high. Thanks Aura!
