Five Acre Barn is an award winning, contemporary bed and breakfast/ holiday rental set in five acres of tranquil garden and woodland. Aldeburgh is the nearest town to the site, a beautiful place on the Suffolk Coast in the East of England, close to Snape Maltings.
Blee Halligan Architects were asked to transform a tired brick barn, which sits in five acres of mixed woodland. Their proposal was for the demolition of an existing 1970’s cottage annex, replaced by a new building containing five en-suite bedrooms.The roof profile is a very unique undulating form that gives a dynamic shape to the duplex interiors of each room and the entire building is wrapped in cedar shingles.
Internally, the rooms have generous living, dressing and bathing spaces, with a bedroom accessed from a bespoke staircase. The upgraded 5th bedroom is more generous in scale, with a 6 metre high living space and carefully selected, private views to beautiful landscaped gardens and the Suffolk countryside beyond.
