A house built around a courtyard
The former agricultural barn has been extended to accommodate the open plan kitchen, dining and living area under a vaulted roof. The Courtyard Barn now embraces a new walled garden, which opens out towards the sun and blends the house with the countryside. One side of the courtyard is formed by the existing barn, one by the extention and one by a garden wall which incorporates an outdoor kitchen.
