Barn Retreat near Oxford - Bespoke Design for a Barn Refurbishment

Syndicate West are currently designing a bespoke Barn Refurbishment - changing an old 'Wash House' into an intimate retreat for this client and their family.

In order to maximise the available space and minimise impact both in terms of financial and environmental costs, the circulation strategy became the focus. A linked stair connects a north facing conservatory to a south facing terrace. This is expressed via a contemporary 'slot'. The beauty of the 185 year old 'Wash House' remains intact.
