The renovation of worn-down buildings into multipurpose structures has always been a meaningful pastime, but with the advent of contemporary stylings and an enhanced focus on bespoke living situations, barns have become something of a cliche within the housing industry. Luckily, London’s Turner Works has an eye for eclectic potential, building this old-school English structure to complement the area’s rustic character.
Turner Works’ “Stealth Barn” fits right in with the area’s rolling hills, utilizing a dark, shaded silhouette to accent the country’s green foliage and calm demeanor. A shadowy exterior clad in the company’s own ebony-stained rendition of rough-sawn wood fencing, a large, sliding-glass entryway, and a collection of simple prefabricated angles bring the newly-devised workspace in-line with many of today’s contemporary living spaces, offering denizens the perfect escape for an hour of artistic freedom, or solitary sleep. On the interior, an unfinished plyboard lining and compartmentalized living areas dressed in modern furniture help to add to the space’s unique charm.
