Ludgate House is a high-quality development whose design references an existing corrugated ‘Dutch’ barn building it replaced. This agricultural building was converted into a contemporary home, whose stand-out feature is barrelled zinc roof. The building also features timber cladding and soffits positioned on the first floor.
Central to the overall design is the floor-to-ceiling curved zinc roof, with standing seam that emulates the corrugated rhythm of the previous barn’s external skin.
