Pennine Farm

Gagarin Studio

Pennine Farm is an 18th century, Grade 2 listed property in the heart of a hilltop conservation village in rural West Yorkshire. The farm is made up of a string of stone buildings to include cottage, barn and ancillary buildings of varying degrees of dilapidation that stagger down the terrain towards a large garden but with the most impressive views across the Calder Valley.

The original buildings were dark, damp and in need of significant refurbishment, the removal of poor quality adaptations, and an improved connection to the landscape context. This is a farm that has been imaginatively transformed to fully realise its potential as a home that is warm, intimate and characterful with new interventions that have unlocked delightful spatial experiences of the interior, light and materiality. Pennine Farm demonstrates how existing buildings like this can be sustainably and creatively re-used to provide joyful spaces in which to inhabit for years to come.
