Nestled on a quiet country lane between 2 medieval castles, you could not have picked a more idyllic setting for this farm which origins date back to the 17th century. Having renovated part of an adjacent barn, we were now tasked with bringing the main house into the modern era whilst maintaining a style which was in keeping with the farm’s rural location.
With the low and short windows, which are characteristic of a farm house of this era, we suggested removing the false beams which were clad to the ceiling.
We replaced these beams with a zonal coffered ceiling design which were enveloped by recessed LED lighting. This created an additional source of much needed light which also added a beautiful feel of elegance.
The necessity of an extractor fan was vital and posed a challenge to the design as bringing the ceiling down any further would only darken the room more.
The innovative use of dropped ‘C’ shaped studwork created the void necessary for an extractor whilst providing the frame work for beautiful olive colour tile to encase it. This was a wonderful way to heighten the impact of the customer’s prized possession… their AGA.
