Heronland Barns

Location | Dorking
Client | Private Client
Status | On Site

Contract | Undisclosed

HBA have designed this private residential house, in the curtilage of a Listed farmhouse in Dorking. 

The existing barns are being reconfigured with new-build link buildings to connect them. This new link acts as a modern cloister defining a new central courtyard and a sensitive new extension helps to enclose this new space.

The main ground floor living spaces all open out onto this external space, linking the inside with the outside in this rural setting.

The black-stained larch cladding is set out horizontally on the historic volumes and vertically on the modern extensions to make the new interventions legible.
