From vacant stable to holiday home
The Hay Loft, a self-contained holiday apartment has been created in a redundant farm building, with a spacious open-plan interior, uninterrupted view across the open countryside and a rustic material palette to reflect the former agricultural nature of the building and its rural setting.
