Thanks to Berlin-based firm Thomas Kroeger Architect, this 19th-century cowshed in the German village of Uckermark has turned into the dreamiest rural escape. Exposed wooden trusses? Check. Hearty oversized fireplace? Check. Glassy modern interiors with tons of colorful, plushy seating? That's rather unexpected, but sure! At the base of this new holiday home and guesthouse is a huge central hall with wooden steps that lead to the elevated living areas. The main vacation residence features a double-height living room with an overhead wooden pyramid structure, which filters light from the skylight above.
