Axis Architecture since 1994

New Barn School

– Welford

Axis Architecture was commissioned to design the renovation work for this 250 year old barn. The client Hillcrest Children’s Services required a change use from B1 offices to a D1 school building.

It was imperative that we designed the interior and exterior playground in strict accordance to regulations and with further guidance and consideration to Special Needs. As is the case with most old barn conversions this project was not without its hurdles: one of the largest maternity bat roosts in the UK found in a roof was discovered here and appropriate provision and licenses were put in place to allow continuation of works.
