Barn Conversion

Zesta are pleased to have secured planning permission and listed building consent for the conversion of a Grade II Listed Tithe Barn and wider complex. We worked closely with Apex Architecture and AMPM Construction to prepare a conversion scheme which retains the historic interest of the barn whilst bringing it into the 21st Century.

The scheme removed the previously proposed garden room extension and the 4 rooflights on main roof slopes of the barn. It also modified the fenestration arrangement to ensure a more traditional form and returned to a more open plan internal form, which retains the original sightlines within the main cruciform structure of the barn.

The scheme also introduced a detached timber garage block, to provide mitigation for a bat loft. The Ecologist confirmed that this was not only an acceptable form of mitigation but it would be preferable from an ecological perspective, as the garage has a better link with the abutting countryside than with the barn itself, which is within the centre of what will be a residential complex.

This project has now been built out to an impeccible standard by AMPM and it’s lovely to see the building restored and converted into a dwelling.
