VESP win Best Interior in the Homebuilding & Renovating Awards 2023

VESP Architects have won Best Interior in the Homebuilding & Renovating Awards 2023 with our Class Q barn conversion Higher Dorsley!

Upon entering the house, you emerge in the double-height kitchen and living space. Here the light pours into the room through the large glazed wall.

The white walls and ceilings, together with the herringbone timber floor, and beautifully crafted timber kitchen joinery offer a neutral palette for our client’s curated collection od art and furniture.

This is what Judge Sian Astley had to say about our project:

“This property gives some serious wows,” praises Judge Sian Astley. “From the soaring black steel framing, the impressive timber structure visible internally and the tactile, elegant larch cladding to the exterior. I love the external palette of materials used, complemented so well inside by the fluted oak kitchen and refined bathroom specifications. Gorgeously finished and not a part of it I didn’t enjoy looking at.”
