Planning granted to an existing farm in Shropshire!

Studio Bark are delighted to announce that we have recently had planning granted for the revival of recently dilapidated additions to an existing farm in Shropshire.

Environmental design is central to our design ethos, so we are looking to retain and re-use buildings and materials where possible. The scheme also recognises the fundamental need for the overall farmstead cluster to be a highly functional farm. We have designed new buildings based on best practice, fabric first principles with a view to minimising embodied and operational energy requirements.


Studio Bark is an award-winning architectural practice with a passion for outstanding, environmentally-driven architecture.


We deliver bespoke and often ground-breaking buildings which are inherently contextual. Above all, our work seeks to be beautiful – environmentally and aesthetically – reflecting the climate and ecological emergency we live in. Energy modelling and life-cycle assessment are importantly a core part of the process.


Our portfolio of built work encompasses residential, commercial and community projects with a particular specialism in bespoke homes. We have a successful track record, securing planning permissions for ambitious designs on challenging sites across the UK.


In addition, Studio Bark has extensive experience delivering and having planning granted on projects through Paragraph 80. An evolution of the ‘country house exception clause’ within the National Planning Policy Framework. Likewise, we are also passionate about realising the latent potential of existing buildings.
