Mod­ern vi­sion

Build It - - RENOVATION & BUILDING -

Si­t­u­ated within the Cotswolds Area of Out­stand­ing Nat­u­ral Beauty, it was es­sen­tial for this new house to blend sym­pa­thet­i­cally with its ru­ral sur­round­ings and the ver­nac­u­lar ar­chi­tec­tural style. The closed panel tim­ber frame sys­tem was man­u­fac­tured at the Baufritz fac­tory in Ger­many be­fore be­ing trans­ported to the UK. Stone cladding has been used on the two gable ends and on sec­tion pan­els on the south­ern el­e­va­tion, giv­ing the prop­erty the au­then­tic ap­pear­ance of a tra­di­tional long barn struc­ture. Ver­ti­cal tim­ber boards, pow­der-coated win­dows and a nat­u­ral slate roof in­ject a crisp, con­tem­po­rary edge.
