Description


Another gorgeous listed property that we’re excited to restore, renovate and extend. All of the works will respectively sit within the grounds of the current property and land. To do so, we will cleverly and thoughtfully choose materials.

This property consists of a farmhouse and two barn outbuildings; currently, the outbuildings are only used as storage. The way the main farmhouse is designed doesn’t best suit a modern family, which the client is looking to solve.

We will add a kitchen extension to open up the living area to combine the kitchen and dining space. We will also be converting the existing cellar into a wine cellar. However, a large proportion of our work will be the reconstruction of an old barn which was demolished before the current owners.

The new barn will join the farmhouse and will also be parallel to a brand new swimming pool that specialist contractors are installing. The new barn will form a new pool house, bar and gym. Not only will the pool house join the main farmhouse, but it will also be connected by a glass passage to one of the existing barns, forming a ‘U’ around the gravel driveway.

    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!
