This may look like your average rustic barn from a distance but as you get closer a modern and sophisticated house starts to take shape. Located in Jackson, US, this lovely home was designed and built by CLB Architects in 2018. It occupies a flat piece of land with 360 degree views of the surroundings. On the outside it projects a modern-industrial look due to the Corten steel cladding. On the inside, a minimalistic and very welcoming home is revealed.
The oxidized steel cladding frames a series of large openings that connect the indoor and outdoor areasThe house retains certain similarities with rustic barns but has a simple and modern aestheticThe building has two separate sections connected by the same roof
The house has an asymmetrical gabled roof which is a beautiful reflection of its eclectic style. The interior is simple and modern, making use of materials such as concrete, glass and steel to project a rustic-industrial vibe. The entryway is defined by an oversized pivoting door and reveals a warm and inviting central living area which extends out onto a protected porch. The bedrooms are placed at either end of the house and have access to terraces framed by perforated walls. There’s also a garage which acts as a separate structure. It’s connected to the main house by the roof which has a large cutout that brings natural light into this transitional area.
