Orchre Barn is a project of barn remodel ideas by Carl Turner Architects in Norfolk. The designer transforms a derelict barn into a family residence in 2010 with about 4,779 square foot wide. It is a project that spends £300.000 to make it as a decent space as a comfortable home. At a distance, the building looks old with its bricks wall and red roof tiles. Luxuriant bushes of lavender hide the building side and keep the natural surroundings.
The designer keeps the original exteriors and improves this home’s interiors in modern touch. It is one of the smart horse barn remodeling ideas that accentuate the authentic facade outside. Reclaimed pitch pine boards are the materials that the designer mainly uses for the interior renovation. Those boards give glorious patterns for the interiors below wooden beams and steels on ceilings. The designer paints the wall in white as plain palette.
Pine boards are really functional. There is a room in the middle of the building with those boards as the additional walls. The designer also uses them as seats material in the dining room with minimalist wide dining table in dark surface. Several bulbs hang from the ceiling beams as the room’s lighting at night. On the other side, there is a living room with those pine boards furnishings as sofas’ backrest frames and desks.
The designer creates long corridor to connect each room. Concrete is the material for the floorings of the public spaces inside this building. In the other rooms such as bedroom, crude woods spread out as floorings to make it warm. They support fireplaces that the designer installs in several rooms inside. Original bricks wall and pine boards desks looks harmonious as the decorations beside vintage fireplace. This house might add horse barn renovation ideas with eco-friendly materials and simple design.
