“The house is entered through two small brick pavilions built within the ruins of a 19th century stable block.” I love the fusion of old and new, for me it brings new life to structure that otherwise would just sit and wait. The textures in the home are amazing, brick, oak, and concrete are just a few. The white brick walls are simply stunning.
“The contemporary construction and materials complete an, albeit fictional, ruin. The stereotomic elements – brick perimeter, concrete floor, brick pavilions – are overclad by the tectonic elements – the profiled metal roof, Crittall glazing and oak cladding. Consequently the seemingly familiar image of an agricultural barn gives way to a more complex proposition concerned with growth of the house over time.”
