Our Class Q barn conversion has been shortlisted for the Homebuilding & Renovating Awards 2023

We are excited to announce that our project Higher Dorsey has been shortlisted for the Homebuilding & Renovating Awards 2023.

Please vote for our entry @ no. 10 here !  Thank you.

Higher Dorsley is a Class Q barn conversion, situated in the beautiful South Hams countryside.


Our clients asked us to convert the barns to create a conformable new home, brimming with light and space.

As you enter the house you emerge into the double height kitchen and living space. In here the beautifully crafted kitchen faced in fluted oak panels, takes centre stage in the neutral palette of white walls and ceilings, timber structure and herringbone timber floor.



Internally, the building is harmonious with our client’s curated collection of art and furniture whilst externally the materials and form stay true to the spirit of local agricultural buildings found in this special part of the Devon countryside.
