The UK’s ‘Ghost House’ Is A Concrete Haunt For Modern Minimalist Living

While many architects are keen to flex their artistic muscles with over-the-top flourishes, we’re firm believers that it’s often restraint that marks a true master. Such is the case with the self-taught Japanese legend, Tadao Ando. And while the ‘Ghost House’ isn’t one of his works, BPN Architects drew inspiration from his repertoire in its creation and brought this etherial brutalist home to life in fantastic fashion.

While the concrete structure itself seems fairly simple, a closer look illuminates a tremendous amount of purposeful, minimalist details. For instance, the structure is sunken into the earth, giving it an almost dungeon-like quality — bolstered further by a pair of unique, enveloping reflective pools at ground level. The interior is equally carefully-considered, boasting exposed concrete floors, walls, and ceilings with blacked-out detailing throughout the structure — including the staircases, countertop, floor-to-ceiling windows and more. It’s an architectural beauty we’d not expect to find in a rural settlement in Warwickshire, England — although that is where it sits.
