A former shepherds hut at Stone in Oxney is a beautifully renovated traditional brick Lookers Hut surrounded by peaceful countryside next to a vineyard. Lookers would use these huts as their accommodation whilst caring for their flocks.
Kent Design Studio were asked by our client to prepare a planning application to convert and extend to utilise the fantastic location of the hut, but also to preserve the building and save it from falling to ruin.
We set about taking the form of the existing hut and placing a modern interpretation by its side, linked by glass to preserve the form and appearance of the original building. The building is now being run as a very successful holiday let, providing tourism to the local area.
Kent Design Studio provided planning, building regulation, detailed design and tender services for this project.
