Oakhouse Barns

Two beautiful 18th Century Grade II listed and part thatched timber framed Berkshire barns have been sensitively converted to create four dwellings of considerable style.

Full height vaulted living areas create space and light where threshing floors used to be with open galleries and mezzanine floors creating useful additional space for study areas and bedrooms. 

The original timber frame of these historic structures has been carefully repaired and exposed to view, celebrating the carpentry of the traditional craftsmen who originally built the barns. In areas of Berkshire red brickwork is similarly left exposed internally.

Fine attention to detail by our architects enabled competitive fixed price tenders to be sought for the conversions with the lowest priced contractor completing the works to a high standard and well within the original
contract price.

The high level of detailed design attention and active project management from the practice has ensured a stunning result for our client.
