Case Study 2 - Foxcote House, Gloucestershire - July 2007

Objective

Foxcote House is a Grade II Listed Building with a curtilage barn structure in close proximity to the listed building. The client wished to convert the barn to provide an indoor pool with gymnasium and some accommodation.

Philosophy

To advise the client at an early stage that there was no guarantee of success and keep an open mind as to the degree to which the existing structure could be altered. Careful design and inventive use of space ensured not only the maximum swimming length within the structure but also the minimum amount of space within the valuable envelope of the building was used for plant and equipment.

Negotiations with the Local Authority were predicated on previous precedence of similar structures and endorsed the appropriateness of this type of building with the proposed use of a leisure facility adjacent to a listed structure. Limited alteration of the fenestration ensured the conservation officers support was gained and the successful application provided a substantial amount of planning gain for the estate as a whole.
