The Project at Mowhay barn, St Ervan is for the extension of a traditional converted Cornish barn into a four bedroom family home. To ensure this beautifully converted barn meets the needs of our client’s family, additional bedroom accommodation and a formalised dining and living area have been sympathetically added.
White Design was approached to work closely with the client in preparing preliminary designs and to secure a planning approval in this stunningly beautiful area of North Cornwall. Every effort has been made to ensure that the proposed extension preserves the character of the existing barn, locating it in a discrete and private part of the site.
Inspiration has been drawn from the surrounding local materials, with a pared back aesthetic. The design will have a strong environmental focus, whilst employing traditional materials, local skills, knowledge and labour in the construction of this new home. Having been appointed in September 2013, Planning Approval was secured less than two months later.
