"Ben understood our vision from the first design appointment, and his drawings took our lifestyle into full consideration. Arron and Ben have stayed in contact throughout the build, ensuring any amendments are in line with the aesthetic we want for our finished home. It would have been a lot more stressful without their help!" Oliver & Eloise

Welcome to ‘The Barn’ – a true self build eco home situated within the grounds of the existing family home. We worked closely with the Oliver & Eloise to design their ‘forever home’; creating a home which reflects the rural context; whilst minimising the impact on the openness, and character on the surrounding village and countryside.


At BCAE Architects, we recognise that your home is more than just a structure – it's an embodiment of your individuality, passions, and aspirations. That's why our approach is deeply personal, beginning with a genuine understanding of you, your family, and your dreams for your forever home.


In our initial conversations with Oliver and Eloise, we delved into the very essence of their lifestyle, preferences, and non-negotiables. They shared their wishlist, laying bare their desires, aspirations, and even their most-definitely-nots. These personal insights became the compass guiding our design journey, ensuring every decision resonated with their unique story.


For Oliver and Eloise, this project was more than just constructing a house; it was about crafting their sanctuary – a space where their personalities could shine through every detail. Their vision was crystal clear – a home that seamlessly merged with the rural charm of Whitestake, married eco-conscious innovation.

Our collaboration with Oliver and Eloise was founded on open communication and mutual trust. Through immersive 3D walkthroughs and in-depth discussions, we breathed life into their dreams, meticulously shaping every facet of their home to reflect their distinct identity. From the rustic charm of the barn's replacement to the modern comforts seamlessly integrated within, every element was thoughtfully curated to surpass their expectations.


At BCAE Architects, we believe that the journey towards your dream home should be as enriching as the destination itself. With a steadfast commitment to collaboration and an unwavering attention to detail, we transform your vision into reality, crafting not just a house, but a true reflection of who you are.


Throughout the construction phase, BCAE Architects remained on hand, offering support and guidance to Oliver and Eloise. Our team was readily available, ensuring that the transition from plans to reality was seamless. From liaising with contractors to addressing any on-site challenges, we remained involved to uphold the integrity of the design and bring our clients' vision to fruition. With our expertise and commitment to excellence, we navigated the construction process together, ensuring the build stayed true to the essence of their dream home.
