Modern Farmhouse Architecture – Layered Farmhouse in UK Countryside

Located in Hertfordshire, UK, the House at Piper’s End is like an onion – boasting many layers which, when peeled back, reveal something totally unexpected underneath. Located on a two-acre country plot, this modern farmhouse by Niall McLaughlin Architects was designed in five parts – “a thicket of silver birch; a timber cabinet; a vitrine of timber framed glass; a loggia of steel columns supporting a perforate metal canopy and a concrete reflecting pool,” as described by the architects. The contemporary design replaces the original farmhouse, an old, run-down eyesore in dire need for a total tear-down. The new farmhouse architecture, which is scheduled for completion soon, sports sustainable design features and is set within the existing mature landscape of orchards, gardens and a pond that sets the tone for country-chic living. Interiors are naturally lit via expansive windows. Soaring ceilings set the stage for a modern, gallery-like space. Niall McLaughlin Architects
