L’Abri Villas was a small development, comprising of the refurbishment of an old granite barn and the construction of a new property on the other half of the site.
The granite barn was stripped back to leave only the original walls. Within the constraints of the original footprint, T&G designed the new reinforced concrete ground floor, lining walls, first floor and roof. Outside the original footprint, we provided structural design for a new steel-framed living room extension, which incorporated large glazing units and Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs).
The new house comprised a timber frame superstructure on a reinforced concrete ground-bearing slab with strip footings, as well as a traditional blockwork garage to the side.
