If building an elegant rustic residence is something that you consider, you have to consider getting some ideas by taking a look at this rustic residence. This rustic residence is called Brotherton Barn and it is a 2007 barn conversion by The Anderson Orr Partnership and it is located in Oxfordshire, England.
To add space to the home without having to push beyond the envelope of the existing barn, the architects had decided to lower new construction into the ground instead of building upward.
The brief from the client was to integrate a contemporary open design within the envelope of the original Grade II Listed Barn with a connection between the houseâ€™s open plan living area and the houseâ€™s secluded master bedroom suite without detracting from the volume and the height of the barnâ€™s vaulted spaces.
The second important element for the barn conversion brief was how to design the buildingâ€™s entrance.
Situated in Pusey, Oxfordshire, England, Brotherton Barn is an elegant rustic residence and it has an open living area, as well as a secluded master bedroom. The rustic residence also has a floating staircase and in addition, a gallery is also amongst the various parts of the house.
The house was formerly a barn and more than a half of the building to the rear section of the barn had been lowered into the ground to ensure that two storeys could be accommodated within the existing envelope of the said barn.
The original roof of the building had also fallen to disrepair and in places collapsed and as a result, Carpenter Oak & Woodland were employed to sensitively repair the buildingâ€™s roof using traditional techniques.
In any way, Brotherton Barn is an elegant rustic residence that many homeowners can get elegant home design ideas and inspiration from and if you wonder how the rustic residence looks like, you can see pictures of the rustic residence taken by David Stewart.
