The brief was to replace a dilapidated farm stable block with holiday accommodation for walkers exploring Hebden Bridge and the surrounding moorland. The design was constrained to the footprint of the stable block, however there was also an unused farm outbuilding adjacent to this. The design uses the outbuilding as an entrance and boot room, allowing walkers to take off their boots and clean them, keeping the rest of the accommodation mud free.
The outbuilding is connected by a glazed link to the living accommodation, a long corridor with a window at the end offers a tantalising glimpse of the views that are to come. A central door opens into a living & kitchen area with large bifold providing views across the valley. There are two bedrooms each with an en-suite, log burner and feature bathtub allowing holiday makers to relax and unwind after a long walk. Due to the topography of the site the proposed accommodation sits lower than the converted outbuilding, a green roof has been utilised in order to seat it into the landscape and limit the visual impact on the environment.
