This striking contemporary country house is set in the garden of a listed 16th century farmhouse in the Rothersthorpe conservation area of Northamptonshire, England. The dwelling replaced a 1950s garage to provide a new home that boasts stunning views across rolling fields. Greenaway Architecture designed the T-shaped structure in homage to the tightly clustered nature of the quaint village surroundings. The design also reflects the heritage of the conservation area with its traditional barnlike features, including vertical timber cladding, which is protected with Sansin SDF (in Driftwood 03). The timber cladding is carried inside the home where it accents the vaulted ceiling of the central dining room. Sansin was selected for its ability to bring out the beauty of the wood while offering superior protection in a range of color options.
