A replacement barn built in the grounds of the architect’s farmstead, its modular parallam portal frame allows for future flexibility.
The barn forms of one of three buildings that make up the settlement. The milking parlour was converted into the office to allow the farmhouse to be converted, the barn was built to provide temporary accommodation.
This was a self-build project, so we needed a form of construction that was easy to erect and clad, without being dependent on heavy plant and machinery. The parallam frame was templated and machined by the local carpenter and the timber frame panels made down the hill at the local timber frame company.
The material palette is one of practical economy; stained timber cladding and corrugated sheet to the exterior; concrete floor, dry lining boards to the walls, plywood to the ceiling internally. Heating is provided by two Dutch tile stoves, one in each main space with power in exposed conduit ducting.
This project was awarded the RIBA Welsh Architecture Award Small Project of the Year 2014.
