hello - I am writing to you today from Stockholm, finally here after a few frantic days finishing up work in Sydney before getting on the plane! It is amazing to be here - as always -and I will be here for the next 2 weeks so make sure you stay in touch via Nordicspace on Instagram during this time to follow me on my visits.
As for todays blog post - I just love this minimalist farmhouse designed by brilliant Copenhagen based NORM architects.
Called Reydon Groove and located on the english country side, this working farm is an architectural statement amidst farmland. A fresh take on the traditional farmhouse- NORM architects designed a minimalist, modern flat one storey building for the clients, situated on the edge of the property close to a grouping of mature trees and with spanning views across the nearby meadows.
Long and narrow with a flat roof , this modern building has huge spans of charcoal framed windows - making the house almost transparent and connecting the outside with the inside spaces at all times. Clad in vertcial lark timber - which will age with time and go grey - the house harmonise with the surrounding nature whilst holding its own among the existing farmhouse buildings.
I have to say I also love a good winter setting and this house is cleverly photographed against greyed trees and frost bitten grass - accentuating the simple and raw essence of the building.
