We are working on converting a 1930s agricultural dutch barn into a new family home under a Class Q Change of Use. The barn is part of Morlands Farm and sits beside the Sussex Prairie Gardens, a unique naturalistic perennial garden on the South-East England gardens trail. 

The proposed scheme places sleeping and home office accommodation on the ground floor, reserving the vaulted upper storey for a large open plan living space with elevated views across the gardens. 

The proposal seeks to make a dwelling that is clearly legible as a former agricultural building in the landscape, with corrugated metal cladding used in conjunction with sliding metal shutters in reference to traditional agricultural building elements.
