The main challenge in this project was how to revive an old 1940s farmhouse without resorting to nostalgic reconstruction, how to spatially and functionally adapt derelict farm buildings without destroying their character. The new use to be incorporated was a veterinary practice and a garage. One of the most unique elements of this work is the long “tunnel” made solely from paving bricks. This passage space connects and separates the two areas in the ensemble. Brick was used here as it is a common building material in the local area which helps maintain the atmosphere of the place and at the same time enhance the film-set feel of the intervention.
