Sum­mer her­alds long, lazy sun-drenched week­ends and the chance to es­cape from hum­drum daily rou­tines, which for this cou­ple means spend­ing time in their se­cond home in Suf­folk, Eng­land. De­signed by Lon­don-based ar­chi­tec­ture firm Stu­dio RHE and filled with fur­nish­ings by Span­ish de­sign col­lec­tive Ket­tal, Wood Farm evokes a con­tem­po­rary farm­house, fea­tur­ing hand­made Suf­folk brick, ter­ra­cotta tiles and a re­pur­posed black barn. The three-room build­ing blends in per­fectly with the lime trees of the sur­round­ing coun­try­side, tak­ing full ad­van­tage of its pas­toral lo­ca­tion.

"The brief was to make the out­door seat­ing ar­eas as invit­ing as the in­side and to en­cour­age out­door liv­ing while sur­rounded by the in­cred­i­ble green coun­try­side," ex­plains Richard Hy­wel Evans, di­rec­tor of Stu­dio RHE. In­deed, the rooms of the home open onto am­ple shaded pa­tio ar­eas, which are closely con­nected to the main build­ing rather than oc­cu­py­ing their own de­lin­eated ar­eas. Gen­er­ous floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows pro­vide views of the beau­ti­ful nat­u­ral sur­round­ings, too. De­sign el­e­ments are re­flected within and out­side the space; the long, rec­tan­gu­lar kitchen is­land mir­rors the ex­te­rior ar­chi­tec­ture of the space, for in­stance, while porce­lain cladding and oak fea­ture in both the fa­cade and the in­te­rior fit­tings.

Of course, a strik­ing ter­race is noth­ing with­out some com­fort­able, aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing out­door fur­ni­ture – so Richard got in touch with Ket­tal to kit out the home. "We have worked on many projects to­gether, in­clud­ing ho­tels and co-work­ing spa­ces," says Richard about the com­pa­nies’ pre­vi­ous


Stu­dio RHE總監Richard Hy­wel Evans指:「大要就是把戶外閒座區打造成室內般的舒適模樣,以優越的綠色田園美景促進戶外生活方式。」家中房間均通往備遮蔽元素的寬闊平台,跟主大樓緊密相連,而非各自為政。落地玻璃窗更飽覽天然景色。設計元素在內、外流動反映;長方形廚房中島跟戶外建築互相呼應,如外牆和室外配件的陶瓷覆面和橡木元素。
