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.

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
