I first saw this barn conversion on inhabitat.com. It is actually several old farm buildings in Buckinghamshire in the UK that have been rehabilitated into a large family home.
The architectural firm that tackled this project was Simon Conder Associates of London, England. According to their website, there are three stone barn buildings that create a triangular courtyard.
I love the combination of old rustic brick and a modern interior…
Let’s have a look inside:
Soaring, lofty ceilings with exposed rafters. It still resembles a barn, but much cleaner.
One of the main objectives was to preserve the open interiors of the original barns with a minimum number of new internal subdivisions.
It is a little stark but would love to see this space with furniture in it!
It is kind of hard to tell, but this area (below) is the kitchen:
You can also see a balcony with glass railing overlooking the kitchen and great room (above).
Apparently one of the other smaller barns is the “children’s area” – complete with a living room, play room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Unfortunately, they don’t have any pictures displayed of the kid’s space.
Which is a bummer because that is something I am looking for in my next house…
a barn to throw the kids in! 🙂
(Doesn’t every parent want that?)
