The conversion of this stable block to a Grade I listed hall, designed by John Dobson, required the sensitive application of insulation to the solid stone walls to ensure the fabric can continue to breathe. We specified carbon negative natural wood fibre and lime insulations to ensure embedded timbers aren’t vulnerable to excessive moisture. The refurbished building, now providing holiday accommodation, is heated with an air source heat pump, and new timber windows maximise natural light to the interiors.
