Project Description

Contemporary Barn Conversion, Sussex

This barn conversion was a project for a developer, Abodenova Limited, on a rural site near Lewes.The plot extends to 2 acres on a triangular site bounded on two sides by country lanes. The house is located on the corner of the plot with beautiful views over pastureland to the north and the South Downs to the west.

The simple existing brick stable buildings are converted and linked with a new fully-glazed area. Bedroom, bathroom and kitchen accommodation is housed within the barn buildings, whilst the fully-glazed central space is the living and dining areas, separated by a screen wall with a log-burning stove.

Penton Architects were responsible for the design of all building, interior design and landscape works and undertook project management of the construction activities.
