Stable Acre by David Kohn Architects

First spotted on Remodelista, this residential project in Norfolk, England is intended to evoke feelings both of ruin and of reconstruction. The architects adopted the existing brick pavilion of a largely ruined 19th century stable to serve as the main entryways. The use of painted brick, cast concrete, and an abundance of light make for a surprisingly bold contrast. And in taking on the challenge of "growth" in a home, promoting the structure to evolve over time, Kohn seems to have created a new sort of timelessness. For more, visit David Kohn Architects.
