Wood Farm in Suffolk, England

An unusual combination of existing farm buildings and Modernist style enclosures, Wood Farm in Suffolk is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that stretches as far as the eye can see. The brief was to create a rigorously contemporary house that is also both sustainable and sympathetic to it’s surroundings.

As such, the new glass-walled barns that have been added to the original agricultural buildings are raised above the floodplain and built using a mixture of local materials. The property faces south to make the most of the uninterrupted views, whilst shielding the open courtyards on either side of the building from strong prevailing winds that whip across the landscape. Consequently, the entire space adapts effortlessly to indoor/outdoor living.

Inside, a series of new oak-clad rooms connect to an old galvanised zinc barn, providing further accommodation. The terraces are furnished as beautifully as the interior, with comfortable, curated pieces.

The materials used in the construction of the house are strengthened by its connection to the natural surroundings; reclaimed handmade Suffolk bricks and terracotta tiles, galvanised steel, flint and green oak are fused with modern laminated timber, oversized frameless glass and black zinc – the striking porcelain cladding is a fittingly luxurious finishing touch.

This surely, is the epitome of contemporary country living.
