I was rummaging through the Border Oak photo collection and came across these - taken a couple of years ago. It's a modern interpretation of an oak framed barn, designed by Thomas Croft, and built by Border Oak. It has a great blend of contemporary detail and craftsmanship, probably most clearly illustrated in the shiny, glossy kitchen (very grown up) with a modern ceiling frame.
I'm always really interesting to see how other people put their stamp on a structure but especially when a modern architect or contemporary design uses essentially techniques and materials over half a millennium old.
We seem to be doing more and more contemporary houses, or should I say 'modern fusion' (I'm sure thats what the fancy architects would call it!) so hopefully the future of oak framing will be just as rosy as its past.
I love the wall of glass (and the view of course)
I am hopefully going back to this house to take some pictures in September, will be great to see how it has weathered
I love the mix of stone, brick, weatherboard , glass and oak - a good palette of colours and textures ( and a very sweet little girl too!)
An elevation of glass - I wonder if they have curtains or not?
