Court Farm is situated in the Langridge Valley, on the outskirts of Bath. It lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty and also the Bath and Bristol green belt. The farm comprises a series of buildings varying in nature, date and quality. At its heart are two Grade II* listed buildings: a C15th farmhouse and a C17th threshing barn. The barn, which has been redundant as an agricultural building for several years, had suffered from years of neglect and was in a poor state of repair.

Taking into account the city’s urban tissue, the project is the renovation of a Brussels typical terraced-house. Originally inhabited by a single family, the house appeared too big and difficult to take care of after the children grew up and left. The owner of the house then decided to sell the last two floors to a friend, in order for him to convert them into his own appartement.
