Project Description

Iggesund Paperboard (Workington) Ltd, an international paper manufacturing company, owns a former farmhouse in Embleton, Cumbria that is used as a hospitality venue for entertaining their customers when visiting their factory in Workington. This project is to convert the adjoining Grade Two Listed barn to create an additional bedroom, a conference facility, and a small relaxation area and gym. The design was carefully considered to insert the new functions into the fabric of the existing building with as little exernal change as possible. The project received planning permission and listed building consent in 2006. The first phase of construction work to the external shell of the building only has been completed.
