We really enjoy farmhouse and barn look architecture. Why we enjoy it? because it’s interesting when the mix of new and old comes together in a modern farmhouse or treehotel. This modern contemporary farmhouse design house that is located in Denmark, designed by Cebra Architects. The contrast of the black roof and facade, with the stark white cut-outs in its exterior walls adds an interesting focal point in this countryside. I especially like the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows that minimize the boarders between the outside and inside. This barn and farmhouse makes living close to nature a more modern approach.
Another cool farmhouse barn inspired design is this layered farmhouse designed by San Francisco-based CCS Architecture.
This modern farm-house is two buildings, with one roof overlapping the other at staggered heights. Located in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. Another cool feature is that the worn, weather-beaten facade is repurposed from a barn.
The Goodman house is located in the pastoral setting of Pine Plains, New York.
And for you wanting to have an update about the treehotel in Harads… the preparations are in full action.
The Mirror cube designed by Swedish architects Tham & Videgard Hansson will have a small kitchen, terrace, living area and sleeping area. Perfect place to stay in the treetops for a vacation, away from the hustle and bustle of crowded city life.
