Barn style replacement dwelling

Biddulph, Staffordshire Moorlands

Gillows Barn

A new build dwelling on the former site of an Equestrian Barn. This building is simplistic in form, with a palette of materials which reflects the agricultural buildings in the local area. 

The dwelling appears single storey, however part of the building is split over two levels with a partially submerged basement and a mezzanine level. 

The main living space is open plan with a full-height vaulted ceiling. Large windows and a bi-fold door offer views of the surrounding landscape and fill the space with natural light.

The roof accommodates a number of Roof-lights on a north-east orientation - allowing the interior to be flood with natural light, whereas the south-west facing roof pitch is covered with solar panels.
