Play Barn and Cafe

The playbarn at Pink Pig Farm at Holme Hall near Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, is an exciting space for soft play and for taking a break in the Oink Cafe. Pink Pig is a farm diversification venture which since 2001 has grown to include a farm shop, a 90-seat restaurant, and a farm park designed with outdoor activities for all ages.

The building is an almost square 18m by 18.581m, and it's tall -- 6.35m to the eaves. The lean-to on the east elevation, for the main entrance, is 18m by 7.381m and 2.55m to the eaves.

The details

Pink finishes on the building reinforce the Pink Pig brand name.
The north elevation contains a striking window 4.7m wide and 7m high at its apex. 

Light also streams through the 12 roof lights in the insulated main roof, which is clad with 0.5mm Kingspan KS1000RW XL Forte leathergrain plastic-coated box profile in grey. Terracotta is the colour chosen for the roof cladding on the lean-to. The insulated side cladding is also Kingspan KS 1000RW XL, vertical plastic-coated box profile, coloured anthracite. 

The purlins and eaves beam are Ultrazeds. The lean-to has an extra row of purlins for snow loading. 

Pink Pig Farm is home to Andrew and Sally Jackson and their family. Andrew is an arable farmer, and Sally has driven the diversification, which prioritises local produce.
