One day I’m going to buy an old barn and convert it into a beautiful country home. Irish architects McGarry-Moon have done just that, preserving part of the original stone structure while using modern architectural techniques to create a fascinating hybrid of old and new. They inserted a stainless steel frame within the stone walls, keeping the old door and window openings on the lower level and adding contemporary fittings above. The result is a totally unified structure fusing traditional and contemporary style. The bedroom is cantilevered off the stone base to provide more floor space and allow for floor to ceiling glass, offering the homeowners panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

This outstanding stone barn renovation has given me plenty of inspiration. I’d better start looking for the right old barn!
