BARC Architects were asked by their clients, a professional couple with a love of architecture and interior design, to create a family house that was simple yet bold, would encourage outdoor living and maximize their garden views.

 

The exterior of the home, which is located in Plymouth, England, is a mixed palette of cedar, black zinc, stacked slate and white painted render.

The living area is spacious and two simple couches sit on either side of the wood coffee table, while a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows adds plenty of natural light to the room.
