Industrial Family Living: Happisburgh Barn Project with Havwoods

Located in Norwich, this spacious barn has undergone a major transformation into a modern family home built for 21st century living. Traditional red brick work and contemporary black detailing on the outside complements the new, industrial-inspired interior where period features such as exposed beams still take centre-stage against the neutral colour palette.

From the floors to the staircase and furniture, natural materials are at the heart of the design with flooring by Havwoods running throughout the bright and airy living spaces. The aesthetic replicates the rich tones and materials of a wood cabin, but with modern amenities to pair.

Providing a rustic appearance and durable flooring solution, the homeowners opted for Havwoods’ Somersby planks from the V Collection. Made from European Oak and a 3-layered engineered construction, the smoky grey boards can keep up with the demands of a busy household while being easy to maintain and visually striking.

Cohesive and seamless, the flooring effortlessly flows from the hallway into the kitchen and open-plan dining room / living room. With plenty of knotting and varied grain patterns, the planks introduce texture and warmth into each room, pairing beautifully with the soft furnishings and bright walls.

The homeowners have installed architectural features including floor to ceiling windows and a floating staircase in a warmer wood, paired with internal glass walls to help reflect and let light run throughout. In the kitchen, the wood-front cabinets provide a darker contrast to the flooring, acting as a perfect middle ground between the lighter planks and dark features such as the black hardware and lighting.
