Lodge Farm is a working arable farm, located in the beautiful Essex countryside. The farm has recently diversified into a successful wedding venue, and needs new spaces to support its growth.
The proposals are to convert several of the existing farm buildings into different uses for the venue. Studio Wolsey are currently working on the conversion of the Grain Store into a large events space, holding 250 guests. We are also working on the conversion of a double bale barn into a bar and central facilities block. The client is keen to preserve the agricultural aesthetic of the barns while creating a luxurious and warm venue which appeals to a broad range of clients. The corrugated cladding and brickwork will be retained. The ornate existing steelwork structure will be refurbished and retained on show internally. New flooring, joinery and lighting will be installed to add warmth and a high quality of finish.
Studio Wolsey are appointed from Detailed Design through to Construction.
