What were the solutions?
After meeting with clients to discuss their brief reviewing the precedent images, Fabric Architecture designed a step pitched ‘barn’ with feature timber doors making use of the clients skill. Throughout the design development, the loft idea was explored and natural light introduced through the Velux skylights.
