A contemporary house in rural England inspired by a previous barn in its location. The design recalls simple square or rectangular barn windows which frame the surrounding countryside. The roof geometry echoes the wings of a butterfly, creating dramatic forms on external and particularly internal walls, contributing to the unique mood and atmosphere. The building is meticulously minimal, featuring only clean lines with no overhanging roof, window sills or other external decoration. It’s clad in vertical panels of larch timber which emphasise the geometric roof lines. Butterfly Barn is for sale through The Modern House.
