Not only that, but the street front pavilion showcases the pool area and the wildlife of the pond.

Napa Barn

The Barn by Pascal François Architects

Located in Aalst, Flanders, Belgium The Barn takes a unique outlook on what a traditional barn “would” look like.

Loughloughan Barn

Brotherton Barn

Located in Pusey, Oxfordshire, England the Brotherton Barn provides all of the barn aesthetics while being modern in some ways. Furthermore, the home works around an open floor plan, but provides a secluded bedroom space. In order to pair the two together, the structure has a floating staircase with a gallery that combines the two while still being separate from the rest of the home. Instead of the designer working upwards and creating a large barn with different levels. The Anderson Orr Partnership decided to keep the home at the level it was first constructed in by working downwards instead of upwards. This gives the come a unique feel as there are two levels, but it appears as if it was only one.
