John Pawson is known for his minimalist aesthetic. When it came to his own dwelling in the Cotswolds, the architect used his signature principals to transform a neglected farmhouse into a family estate in the English countryside. The 22-acre farm features an ancient carp pond, an orchard, and a collection of buildings that date back to 1610. Between the original cottage and barn, a layered concrete addition connects the volumes to create a continuous living area. The exteriors remain mostly unchanged while the interior is filled with simple spaces formed by lime plaster walls and concrete floors. Elm cabinets and floors sourced from Germany were brought in to match the existing beams. Furnishings are kept to the essentials and include some of Pawson's own designs, creating a series of clean, calming rooms. Along with a few of Pawson's other minimal masterpieces, the Home Farm is featured in the book John Pawson: Anatomy of Minimum.
