Deep in the Kent countryside and in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Landivar Architects were commissioned to convert a derelict Oast building to form 5 houses. Oast structures were traditionally used to dry the hops in the brewing process and are key feature to the Kent agricultural landscape. With their grand proportions and modest utilitarian architectural detailing, the Oast buildings typology provide a fascinating basic structure for generous contemporary living.

We have retained the fundamental aspects of the traditional structure whilst renovating and adapting the structure to accommodate the requirements of a 21st century home.
