MLA Architecture and Development embarked on a compelling project, breathing new life into a dilapidated agricultural barn nestled within the grounds of a Grade 2 listed farmhouse in Wyboston, Bedfordshire. The barn’s former disuse led our charge to reimagine its potential, with the aim of crafting desirable living spaces for sale.
Our solution involved transforming the barn into three distinct mews-style dwellings, each graced with independent parking and tiered gardens. Leveraging permitted development rights and a meticulous planning process, the change of use gained approval through a successful prior notification submission to the local Bedfordshire authority.
The barn’s inherent character provided a canvas for thoughtfully designed, well-proportioned 2-bedroom dwellings. Within, open-plan kitchen diners feature exposed oak trusses, resonating with the heritage of the space. A revival of the external fabric brought forth a new slate roof and rejuvenated stonework, preserving the architectural essence.
Guided by our expertise, we secured planning permission, building control approval, construction details, and specifications, all while orchestrating seamless on-site coordination with contractors. As our collaboration continues, we are currently engaged in converting additional agricultural barns into captivating dwellings across sites in and around Bedfordshire.
