Barn Conversion Dorset

The Old Dairy

A cluster of dilapidated, unused, historic dairy buildings on Silver Street in Sway, carefully converted to a fully functioning, modern office environment complete with additional commercial units, courtyard, landscaped and wild meadow gardens, parking and views across the forest. The traditional farmstead development conserved and enhanced the structures and immediate surrounding area whilst retaining the essence of traditional New Forest vernacular and achieving high levels of sustainable construction. Restored, reused and recycled materials were employed for the majority of the project and much of the furniture was handcrafted by Tuakana’s own carpenters, using recycled materials. Offering an interesting and vibrant working environment, that the team are extremely proud of.
