Studio Spicer Architects was commissioned to design the redevelopment of a former cattle farm in Knowle. The site had a difficult planning history, located in the Green Belt and having been refused permission on multiple occasions, for various forms of redevelopment.
Studio Spicer’s unique approach to combining contemporary design with sensitive reuse of the existing character buildings, attracted the support of the local planning authority.
Substantial brick-built barns were extensively refurbished and converted and partnered with a series of bespoke, agriculturally inspired dwellings, creating a micro-community, centred around a communal courtyard.
