Old Fire Station, Olney

Client

Private

Date of Completion

July 2010

Location

Olney

Project Brief

This project saw the renovation and conversion of a former fire station and subsequently a workshop for car restoration, into a single family dwelling.  Situated within the Conservation Area of the bustling historic market town of Olney, the building had become rather neglected and run down over recent years.

Project Details

The design of the new home respects the existing form, detail and materials of the existing barn and additions, repairs and modifications were carried out using traditional materials where appropriate.  The spatial qualities have largely been retained by creating open plan spaces for the living, kitchen and dining areas on the ground floor, with open spaces above.  The introduction of a galleried landing over the main dining space and the glazing of the large openings on either side of the barn have introduced a light and airy feel, and have retained the building’s original character.

The layout of the dwelling is logical and functional and utilises the large spaces and volume the main barn has to offer, accommodating four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor.  A further guest bedroom and bathroom is located on the ground floor.
