Our next article is about an old stable in Hampshire, England that used to accommodate the most elite horses some 100 years ago. Now, the building shines with its renovated interior and exterior spaces in a new, contemporary way. Today’s purpose of the house is to function as a guesthouse where visitors can have a night in an amazing atmosphere. In order to preserve the original spirit that gives the place the its unique character, the designers decided to keep several elements, like the stable doors and walls. In fact, all the original items add the so called “rustic” look in the otherwise contemporary minimalist interior. Furthermore, the wooden feel is completed by the use of original towel holders and converted through sinks.
Basically, all the interior is at basic level here. It is simple, it is minimalist, it is rustic and it has a really stylish appearance. From this point of view, we can clearly see how the kitchen opens to a nearly located dining are which is lightened by the natural light coming from the double-glazed windows.
The architect’s project includes six stable bay, that are turned into several separate functional spaces. At one end there are the sleeping beds, while the other serves as living area. In the center of the construction, there are the kitchen and the dining room.
