Knepp Bio Barn
Knepp Bio Barn sits in the idyllic setting of the Knepp Castle Estate.
For over 10 years this 3,500 Acre grade 1 listed estate has been leading the way in regeneration and restoration projects, aimed primarily at nature conservation and less intensive methods of sustainable meat production.
In order to further the estate’s green credentials, Sir Charles Burrell appointed Studio Bark to design a green oak framed and timber clad biomass barn in 2013. The barn incorporates a 100sqm chip store, a large boiler room and a number of associated machine stores. Studio Bark sourced most of the materials used in construction locally or from the estate woodlands themselves. Furthermore, they also sourced all the wood chip from waste timber from routine thinning.
