Winward House – an 18th century farm house with modern extension

Posted on Mon, 21 Mar 2022 by KiM

It can sometimes be a bit jarring to see such a modern extension on a centuries old home but given I often say I’ll need at least 4 homes to get in all the styles I really like, in this case you get the best of both worlds in ONE home! Here the 18th century Georgian farmhouse in Gloucestershire has been transformed into a double height art gallery and an office. The addition comprises the living spaces. An exquisite juxtaposition of old and new. By Alison Brooks Architect. Photos: Paul Riddle.

Was just watching a Youtube of Grand Designs yesterday that featured this house as one of the houses considered for house of the year 2021. Beautiful!

Melanie D Millar says:

This project is stunningly beautiful. If you go to architect’s web page, there is a video that helped me get my head around what I was seeing. There are also renderings–also helpful.
This is the most exciting thing I have seen in a long time.

Kae Norman says:

I normally loathe modern additions to traditional homes but this was absolutely stunning. The Architect is very talented person! I love the art and the light play and the window in the bedroom. Thank you so much for sharing. x
