Hillside farm is a collection of three derelict and decrepit buildings on the side of Werneth Low. The project seeks to renovate and re-use the existing stone barn, whilst providing replacement dwellings by means of a new farmhouse and bungalow.
The buildings are traditional in construction, comprising of load bearing masonry walls with cut timber roofs, suspended timber floors and precast ground floor units. Traditional deep trench footings are provided to overcome issues surrounding shrinkable clays on site. A Sustainable Urban Drainage system (SuDS) is provided to the entire site.
