Addition and complete renovation of a historic, 19th century agricultural farm building. Prior to the intervention, the historic building was dark and disconnected from its surroundings. The architectural objective was to convert the structure into a residence while increasing its size to meet the owners brief while bringing in light and creating a strong connection to the exterior.

The primary challenge was to transform the dark and damp structure into a light, open and airy residence. This was particularly challenging given the strict preservation laws.
