Farm houses that undergo alterations have many chances to become part of the modern architectural landscape. Contemporary additions using efficient building materials and technologies give the remaining old structures a particular charm. Reminiscent of the old farm ways, the surrounding landscape bonds with the new building with the help of the old structure. Located in Bath, Bath and North East Somerset, UK, this spectacular innovation of a modern farm lifestyle display is home to Xa Sturgis and Anna Benn, who now live in an inspiring rural countryside benefiting from the comfort of modern life while enjoying a rustic charm.
According to its architect of Invisible Studio, “Starfall has a very simple asymmetric section that allows the morning light to penetrate deep into the building and flood it with light. The key detail is the timber cladding which is designed to conceal the (awkward) proportions of the openings of the astonishingly ugly rear extension which the client deemed must stay given the cost of demolition just to rebuild the equivalent volume. ” The original rustic farmhouse received a bold modern touch inside – living spaces of the 2,368 square feet Starfall Farm is beautifully designed to retain the old concept while giving it a whole new comfort level.
