The Shabby Chic Farmhouse That Floats on The Water

A farmhouse from the 19th century was recently renewed and transformed into a comfortable living space. What’s really interesting about it is the fact that its porch actually floats on the water. The Floating Farmhouse (the name actually makes a lot of sense) is located in Eldred, New York and somehow, it conquers you with sprinkles of shabby chic details, still untainted. Givonehome, the design studio that restored the farmhouse, wanted to keep some of the authentic details. When the toppling house was brought, no one believed that something beautiful can come out of it. But “after a design and rebuild process spanning four years, the 1820 manor home is now a study in contrasts: fully restored to its period grandeur while featuring purely modernist elements, including a curtain wall of skyscraper glass in the kitchen, polished concrete and steel finishes” the house is “good to live” and enjoy a benefits of a simple lifestyle.

The kitchen is very luminous and spacious. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer a wonderful view over the site and let the light create a bright and vivid atmosphere. The idea was, from the very beginning, to emphasise the beauty of the existing décor elements, without upgrading them (unless they really needed an upgrade). Beautiful and chic, with its shabby elements, the Floating Farmhouse is a wonderful retreat for those who seek peace of mind and tranquility.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
