The existing site comprised of a series of agricultural farmhouses, stone and steel barn structures, located on the Northumberland Coastline.

The client's requirements were create a low density residential development whilst maintaining the beautiful farmyard style layout of the agricultural holding.  

The design response was to focus the views on the sea and enhance the existing courtyard feel to the development to protect the spaces from the fierce coastal winds, whilst celebrating the existing structures and restoring the beautiful stone buildings with minimal glass extensions to celebrate the historic existing structures of the site.
