Barn of Beauty: Renovated barn is now a modern and contemporary house for the owners

15 February, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

This old barn is a conversion created by Maxwan architects. It has a wonderfully spacious plot of about 2 acres with beautiful scenery. The architects were asked to help create the dream home for the owners which consisted of a large living room and kitchen where you could relax, entertain friends and organise wine tasting events for their clients. The barn was in a rather dismal state before the renovation, with small windows and falling brickwork, it was not a habitable abode. However, the architects have done a wonderful job of remaking this beautiful barn. Inside, the main features are the wooden beams in the high ceilings which add a real rustic feel to the whole house. The decor is neutral and modern, with rustic textures and finishes.
