Hillcott barn, jostles in an exciting way, with conservation heritage. Located in a remote valley of Herefordshire it is a mouthwatering example of contemporary residential design.

The program exposes the pitfalls of self project management. RRA Architects believe that self-build project management is fraught with complexity and shouldn’t be attempted without professional guidance through out the entire project.

This episode of Grand Designs, first released by Channel 4 in April 2006 highlights in bucket-loads, how client optimism mixed with reality are not necessarily happy bed fellows. The end result after much blood, sweat and tears is a fantastic barn conversion described by Ken McCloud as, ” a mouthwatering contemporary barn conversion.”

The program maker Talkback Thames submitted this episode of Grand Designs for a Golden Montreux TV award in 2006.
