Five Acre Barn Bed & Breakfast nears completion! Located near to the Suffolk coast and the seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Thorpness, this project has been a labour of love for our clients Bruce and David who did much of the construction work themselves. The results reveal an unloved barn converted into a stunning piece of contemporary architecture, set into a mature garden landscape. Blee Halligan were commissioned to design the contemporary wing
to house five lofty rooms with mezzanine bed decks and double height living spaces. Entirely clad in cedar shingles, the new building sits comfortably in the garden landscape and will weather down to a silver-grey over time. Stainless steel gutters match the shingles to create a seamless object form with an undulating saw-tooth roof line. The historic barn has been converted to include a social living space, open plan kitchen and the owner's accommodation.
