By removing the existing utility room and toilet that were previously located in the entrance area and the area of the floor above, the architect was able to discover the beautiful stone walls and create a dramatic double-height space. The full-height window gave views through to the open countryside beyond and the contemporary bridge connected both old and new and either end of the barn.

7. Don’t be Afraid to Use an Architect Don’t think your project is too small to use an architect. They are independent design experts, with the training, experience and creativity to make decisions about what will work in your home and whether it’s feasible. Only those registered with the ARB (Architects Registration Board) can legally refer to themselves as architects. Working with a registered architect gives you the reassurance that comes from using a qualified professional with relevant experience, design vision, creativity and years of training. Before you go ahead you can check you are using an architect at http://www.arb.org.uk/
