Interior architects Frederic Kielemoes and Vanessa Cauwe purchased their home back in 2008, a barn typical to the region near Kortrijk, Belgium, with plans to renovate the property.
Frederic: ‘the reconversion of the barn by CAAN architects is largely defined by the symbiosis of the old structure and the new volume.’
This synergy of old and new brought together Winchester Classic field tiles in Pure White and a modern minimalist kitchen. Here’s a look at the finished result:
The rebuilt flax barn is mainly built of wood and glass to reflect the indoors and outdoors, the overall aspect of the pavilion was influenced by the barn’s existing colour palette. Choosing a neutral colour scheme creates a sense of calm and a timeless space to enjoy for years to come. These Winchester Classic field tiles come in various shades of cream and white, so you can create a neutral canvas similar to Frederic’s’ in a variety of tones.
Frederic: ‘The atmosphere of the pavilion is open and textural with a contemporary feel. The rich palettes, materials and interior furnishings play a key role in the relationship between the old and new building. The personality of the pavilion is immaculately detailed, aiming to gain the maximum result from each material.’
Frederic: ‘The interior architects’ approach to create a quality living space, blending effortlessly into the heritage of the flax barn became a statement of cleverness.’
