Here's a Photo of a 15th-Century Barn in the English Channel

The good people over at Contemporist have turned their attention to La Concha House, a remodeled 15th-century barn on the island of Guernsey in the English Channel. Renovated by London-based architecture firm MOOARC, the house consists of two main volumes—one with the kitchen, dining, living, and play rooms and another with the bedrooms—separated by a small courtyard and connected by a glassy second-floor hallway According to the description, the Nolli Plan—a map of Rome drawn by architect Giambattista Nolli in 1748—inspired the direction of this project, likely because of the interplay among public and private spaces. According to us, it's quite a lovely sight to behold. Go to Contemporist for the full gallery.
