A dynamic Scandi Barn building design was on the menu for my motivated & hand's-on clients in Roleystone. Their aspiration was for a small home for them and their son, which showed some Architectural flare, reflected their minimalist lifestyle, and reuse the bones of the existing condemned residence. Something that is them that they can Owner Build themselves.
Designed with SIP's construction in mind, we needed a simple overall form that used the Structural Insulated Panel's Black to best effect and would go together a bit like a stack of cards, be cheap, be heavily insulated and see the building reach the lock-up stage quickly. Externally it features dark standing seam cladding & double-glazed windows, with hardwood cladding. The Street facing elevation features that bold Scandi Barn facade, with handcrafted made metal fascia, suspending the roof as it floats over the windows & walls below.
Internally we wanted to showcase the warm tones of the OSB board & timber and offset them with a much lighter internal feel. Just 2 Bed, 1 Bath, 1 WC, Small Office & Open Plan Living on the mid floor, flexible extra grow space in the mezzanine & Laundry downstairs. The Alfresco floats over the old building foundations & welcomes in the sunsets. Northern Veranda does its best to keep the sun & rain out.
I could say much more about this project but.....why!! I like it a lot, how about you?
"We made a decision to renovate/rebuild a small but well-designed home for our block in Roleystone. We wanted to find someone who was independent of a builder, experienced with SIP houses, and would be a good person to guide us on how to maximise the space on the existing footings of the previous home. Choosing wasn't easy, but as soon as we met Aaron - it was clear he was the right fit. He loves what he does, always finds time for you, he's knowledgeable, he listens, and keeps you in the loop before and during the process. His designs ticked all the boxes and we're looking forward to bringing it to life! I would absolutely recommend choosing Plot Design if you're looking for a well-designed sustainable home that is the perfect fit for you, brought to life by someone who loves what they do." - Jane & Aaron, Roleystone
