Talwrn, Anglesey, 2017
The client came to us looking to retain as much of the character from the original barn as possible whilst creating a healthy, sustainable new home. The building is listed, so we minimalised interventions, only adding new openings where absolutely necessary. We've proposed a small, subtle extension to the rear which is barely visible from the garden to create a new bedroom and bathroom. Natural wood fibre insulation allows the old stone walls to continue breathing and balances their moisture content, which creates a healthy internal environment.
