We were approached by The Star Inn at Harome to develop an existing scheme that had been produced by another designer. The scheme already had planning permission and consent for a new-build, four-bedroom guest annex, plus, several extensions and refurbishments to the existing listed farmhouse and historic outbuildings.
The sensitive, rural site straddles the Harome Conservation Area and an area of high landscape value. Our approach was to create interventions which were subservient to the listed building and respectful to their surrounding context whilst, being clearly identifiable from the historic fabric due to their contemporary nature.
Working within the footprint set out in the previously approved scheme, we developed the proposals to suit the client’s brief, creating high-quality architecture to compliment the site and its context.
The material treatment of the proposals draw inspiration from the local, rural vernacular; using traditional materials such as pantiles and timber cladding combined with contemporary detailing and double-height glazed elements.
