Contemporary redevelopment of  a traditional farmstead
Leek, Staffordshire Moorlands

As a part new-build scheme, Brookmere Barns will sit nestled in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands countryside.

 

Following the existing builds falling into a state of disrepair, Arkhi were appointed to design a bespoke, high quality, new development that will be an asset to the Moorlands and a home for the clients.

 

The proposed dwelling is set back from the public highway to take advantage of the uninterrupted views of the surrounding Staffordshire countryside. Already a quiet country road, the vegetation bordering the road to the south of the site screens most of the site from the public creating a strong feeling of privacy.

 

The new dwelling will be formed by three key elements: the existing barn to be converted, a new-build dwelling, and a ‘link building’ bringing the two larger building masses together.

Due to the rural context of the site, innovative design and sustainability were key drivers of the project. Along with a ground source heat pump, SIPs will be used for the construction of the new build to reduce on-site waste and reduce the embodied carbon in comparison to traditional building materials and processes.

 

The site is also home to a variety of fauna including owls and bats. Careful provisions are being made to preserve the local biodiversity through tree surgeries and enhancements to the existing habitats.
