Listed Building Renovation, Bulbeck Mill, Cambridgeshire
Located in Barrington to the West of Cambridge, Bulbeck Mill is a collection of Listed Buildings configured around a central courtyard.
Tye Architects were involved in a number of highly sensitive listed building restoration works to various aspects of the site. These works were phased over a number of months in order to most carefully deal with the planning implications involved.
We worked closely with the clients, a planning consultant and the local authority in the development of the proposals to ensure we could obtain the optimum design outcome for the site. This listed building extension comprised a lot of parts that went together to create a very successful outcome; with multiple buildings and accents.
The proposals for the listed building renovation site consisted of a combination of design factors: change of use and full refurbishment of the Mill to ancillary residential use to the Mill House, conversion of the thatched barn to a music room/gym, modification of a number of windows to the Milll House thus maximising the use and views from the internal spaces, a new contemporary glazed link connecting the Mill and the Mill House.
The scheme also benefited from a full landscaping proposal to visually bring together all elements. This extraordinary site is a testament to, not only our award winning architect team, but to the teamwork between multiple parties as well as the client; working together to renovate a fairly run down listed building into a large, luxurious family home.
