North Somerset.


Watercress Barn is a complex of early 1800's agricultural buildings that were converted into a house in 2006. The original barn conversion living spaces did not fully maximise the link to the garden.


Corbel Architects have updated an existing planning consent and gained permission to improve the extension design so that the living space opens up to garden further and the details sympathetically marry to the existing barn allowing several historic features to be retained.


The design developed through close discussion with the client and use of a working model and drawings to clearly illustrate what is proposed.


With a tight programme, we recently started work on site and we are looking forward to seeing the end results.
