Building an extension to an already existing building can be very tricky. But Mole Architects in the UK did a pretty good job adding some space to this farmhouse in Sussex Downs (South-east england). Keeping a certain local design with a barrel roof, the architects at Mole got a great idea to mix modernism with old fashioned design (the original farmhouse was built in the 70′s). Whilst the actual extension is made out of red bricks (like the actual farmhouse), the part bringing the two buildings together is made out of glasses. It’s just about modern house, but it’s also about creating a certain transition between what you would call the place to live, and the place to relax. When it comes to interior design, we have to admit it, it’s quite stunning. All pictures were taken by David Butler. More about on Mole Architects’ website.
