London-based firm Buckley Gray Yeoman breathed new life into an old Victorian barn by transforming it into a stunningly sophisticated home. The renovated barn, which is currently on the market for $1.26M , features floor-to-ceiling glazing, exposed wooden beams, and other design elements that pay homage to the building’s history. The barn is located on two and a half acres in a small Suffolk village, jut two hours outside of London. The project began with a large decrepit barn and an adjacent cart shed, which had been left abandoned for years. Related: Decrepit farm buildings reborn into modern energy-efficient home in Suffolk Although the barn was in very bad shape at the start of the project, the architects sought to maintain the structure’s rural character throughout the renovation . “We sought out to respect the industrial heritage of the building whilst also providing a contemporary house,” explained Buckley Gray Yeoman lead architect, Richard Buckley. “The combination of old and new was brought together through careful planning.” This effort to combine old and new resulted in a gorgeous home that marries the very best of contemporary living with a strong rustic vibe. The home’s wooden facade was restored and painted black to give it a modern look. The original brick base was also restored to its original state. The main living area was extended vertically to create a loft-like double-height space. Floor-to-ceiling glazed walls flood the interior with natural light and add a sense of wellness throughout the home. Three bedrooms are located on the ground floor, along with a study and a utility room. The upper floor features a master bedroom and an ensuite bathroom. The barn’s existing wooden beams were left exposed to strike a contrast with the glass partitions that designate the interior spaces. The old cart shed next to the home was also renovated into a two-story living space, with a large solar array on the roof. The compact structure houses a workshop and garage on the first level, while the upper level serves as a guest home with a large bedroom, bathroom and living space. The landscape architecture around the property was maintained in the original style and layout. A landscaped, walled-in garden was brought back to life in front of the house, while the rest of the property was left in a natural, wild state. + Buckley Gray Yeoman Via Dwell Images via The Modern House

Nothing tugs at our country-loving hearts quite like a good barn conversion . With this minimalist renovation in Wyoming, Carney Logan Burke Architects transformed a weathered farm building into a refined, light-filled guest house. Using reclaimed materials to help offset the project’s environmental impact, the firm deftly retains the original structure’s unique character. The Barn in Wilson is set into a lush green meadow. Extra large windows on one side of the loft flood the interior with natural light , offering unobstructed views of the surrounding greenery and majestic Teton Range in the distance. Related:Beautiful converted barn hides a secret library in Oxfordshire The natural setting and historic nature of the structure guided the renovation process. Reclaimed barnwood and cedar shake shingles give the exterior the appearance of a long-weathered barn without the maintenance headaches. The project’s most compelling feature can be found inside on the second floor. Originally a hayloft, the open space was outfitted as a sophisticated guest room, kitchenette, and gym. The living space is flooded with natural light, which enhances the reclaimed oak floors and plank ceiling with exposed trusses. The bottom level is used as a garage and workspace, resulting in an elegant, multipurpose guesthouse we’d be more than happy to live in. + Carney Logan Burke Architects Via Uncrate Photography by Audrey Hall / Carney Logan Burke Architects
