Moorend Ruin

This project involved part demolition and reconstruction of an historic ruin that was originally three cottages to form a home, office, workshop and storage area ancillary to the main building; Moorend Barn.

The new building is a stepped construction which follows the contours of the existing ground.  The existing walls of the ruin are incorporated within the new design, following works of height reduction and stabilisation, whilst maintaining the original stonework feature that compliments the new materials, such as copper fascias and rainwater goods, curved aluminium sliding doors and bespoke cedar cladding and balcony.

The new structure is supported by a network of concealed steelwork so as not to load the existing historic walls.

The new building includes all M&E services, mains power, mains water, etc. and has been completely decorated and fitted out to the client’s bespoke requirements.
