Historic Buildings Adapted. Repair and re-use of old and often historic buildings forms a major part of the range projects undertaken by Robinson Thorne Architects. The careful alteration of existing buildings for contemporary uses provides specific challenges which always require a highly individual site specific and customised approach. Such an approach has been at the heart of the work undertaken by RTA over the last twenty five years.

Standen Farm Buildings, adjacent to the National Trust's Grade I Arts and Crafts mansion, were built as a model farm for the Beale family not by Philip Webb, but by his colleague Vigers. Based on the historic barn, the buildings formed an enclosed yard. For the National Trust, RTA have converted the barn into a restaurant, with new kitchen extension. The remainder of the buildings have been converted to form a large private dwelling.
