Church Hill Barn, a home designed by David Nossiter Architects, is a contemporary home that adheres to the best aspects of conservation, both in terms of cultural and environmental conservation. The home, located in the English county of Suffolk, was once a simple red brick barn, but it has been repurposed in order to house a family comfortably.

Admittedly, barns are not the most comfortable living space (unless one happens to be a farm animal.) However, the barn has a cruciform shape that was the result of its original owner experimenting with alternative forms of farming, which prompted local officials to designate the space as a heritage site. Forbidden from tearing it down, David Nossiter Architects instead transformed Church Hill Barn into a spacious but comfortable living space for the clients who bought the property.
