Victorian farmhouse in Cotswolds
The project was realised by Waugh Thistleton Architects for the artist Jake Chapman and his family. The restoration uses a modernist vocabulary to link an existing Victorian farmhouse and the 17th century barn. The Vitrocsa windows, with their slim mullions of 18mm, give a lightness to the existing buildings and distinguish between what is old and new at the same time as weaving the buildings together. All the large window panes slide allowing various combinations of openings, including a dissolved corner.
