This well known, historical listed building needed an upgrade to its hotel rooms, which had become tired and basic. Modernisation was required, but DV Architects also needed to maintain the character of the building.
The three story, listed building, featured a pub on the ground floor, which was rundown, tired and had been closed. The challenge for DV Architects was to work closely with Anthony Carty Design, providing a full design and build service, including subcontractor management.
The Grade II listed building required repairs to the ceiling, plasterwork and its supporting structure and had become tired, dark and dated. The challenge to DV Architects was to carry out a full internal refurbishment to revive the pub and bring it back to life.
The new internal refurbishment incorporated decoration, artwork throughout the space and new furniture that would work in groups of two, three or four, and could also come together allowing the space to be used as a banqueting hall. Now everybody orders from the original main barn and then chooses to sit in the refurbished barn.
