Five Acre Barn B&B by Blee Halligan Architects

Redesigned in 2017 by Blee Halligan Architects, this inspiring barn B&B is located in Aldeburgh, United Kingdom.


Aldeburgh is the nearest town to our site, a beautiful place on the Suffolk Coast in the East of England, close to Snape Maltings.

We were asked to transform a tired brick barn, which sits in five acres of mixed woodland. Our proposal was for the demolition of an existing 1970’s cottage annexe, replaced by a new building containing five en-suite bedrooms.

The roof profile is a very unique undulating form that gives a dynamic shape to the duplex interiors of each room and the entire building is wrapped in cedar shingles.

Internally, the rooms have generous living, dressing and bathing spaces, with a bedroom accessed from a bespoke staircase. The upgraded 5th bedroom is more generous in scale, with a 6 metre high living space and carefully selected, private views to beautiful landscaped gardens and the Suffolk countryside beyond.
