The Old Flax Shop
This project is a small, but complex conversion of a Grade II curtilage listed building in the Dorset area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The owners approached design storey with a view to convert this interesting former flax shop building into holiday let accommodation.
The brief included sensitive conversion of the existing building by the insertion of two bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen to create with an independent entrance. Inspiration was drawn from the building’s flax history by proposing a stair with rope balusters and industrial style finishes. Where possible existing features and finishes will be retained to protect the distinct character of the building.
