A pretty setting of farmhouse, barn and courtyard. The farmhouse needed to be remodelled, extended and restored to preserve the character of this group. The use of colour on the joinery brings focus to the country charm. The adjacent oak-framed barn with straight through cart bay has been given a minimal conversion to simply re-clad, insulate and plaster the walls and roof. This leaves the interior unaltered for family events – no new windows, floors or any domestic incursion has been allowed. KENTISH CHARM 44 STEPHEN LANGER ARCHITECTS PORTFOLIO
