The Barn was attached to the main property located in Foxt near Leek. We converted it into a large kitchen, separate utility, adjoining room and fabulous room above. Although the client wanted a modern look we carefully maintained and left exposed the original timbers. A modern staircase provided access to the room above.
Bedroom/ Living area
Bedroom Living area with high quality graded engineered flooring complete with lots of storage. Not wanting to compromise the room space with wardrobes etc we intended the storage to become part of the structure. Plenty of lighting added to the overall result.
Lounge/ Dining area
Quite an open plan design, we removed the internal wall and added a walk round fireplace which become the central feature. Hidden lightning in the inset ceiling gave the room a very special feeling. During the day the light flooded into the whole area through the large patio doors and windows.
Multi height ceiling
One of several feature ceilings set at different heights and shapes. Constructed from timber and plasterboard. They were made to hide an array of hidden and visible Led lighting. Part of the property was a gallery, the end result was very minimal, clean and sharp.One of several feature ceilings set at different heights and shapes. Constructed from timber and plasterboard.
