Nothing beats a wonderfully executed conversion, like this barn located in Yorkshire, England. I absolutely love the vintage details with some modernism via some black and yellow. Exposed beams, stone walls and tongue and groove panelling make this extra special. Available as a location home via jj Locations.
Dating from the 1820s this historic stone barn in Tasmania has been lovingly restored by its architect owners. The award winning conversion keeps as much of the existing building fabric as possible. “The original sandstone walls are exposed both internally and externally. The timber shingled roof and existing beams contrast with the new kitchen and bathroom insertion. The Barn is light and open, yet simultaneously cosy.“ Located in Hobart’s CBD it’s the perfect base for exploring the historic Australian city. It’s definitely on my bucket list.
New Zealand… a spectacularly beautiful land. Which raises the question, if you live in a stunning setting what do you do with your house design? Do you give up and live in a nondescript building because it is all too hard? Do you go at it all guns blazing hoping to beat those goddamn majestic mountains down to size, show ’em who is boss or do you do what architects Sumich Chaplin have achieved with this Central Otago home? Build a strong, sympathetic building that celebrates its surroundings yet sits solidly, and peacefully, on the site.
Forget those cabins, how about this 70 ft stone tower in the middle of a forest!! OMG this is absolutely incredible. I could live here forever and ever. The end. (Located in Meriwether County, GA, designed by Summerour Architects)
Love the juxtaposition of old stone and modern glass in this conversion in the ancient city of Safed, Israel by Henkin Shavit Architecture & Design. The history is palpable. The future is present.
