The Space at Caro
Refurbishment of a historic stable building in Bruton, Somerset to create a flexible event space and studio holiday-let accommodation.
Suitable for exhibitions, workshops and events, as well as functioning as a natural light photography studio, the double height ground floor space is minimal and bright with a polished concrete floor and full-length window with glazed solid oak door.
The simple but welcoming first floor guest room with en suite is offset from the event space and reached via a new timber stair.
Previously used for storage, the Victorian outbuilding now generates income and has become part of the town’s creative scene.
The project included sensitive repairs to the original brick walls and existing windows, insulating the walls and roof, and bringing in full services The roof ridge was raised to create a usable first floor space, with its new timber roof structure left exposed.
