Wriggly Tin Shed

Saw this barn on the way back from the Featherstone/Young Ty Hedfan House – my favourite material, I think. I’m influenced just a little by Murcutt, of course

Staggeringly beautiful old barn. The space inside is just sublime – check out the horizontal shaft of light coming in…  The beam to column connection… and the brickwork on the inside wall in the bottom picture – maybe my favourite brick i’ve ever seen…

Amazing sheepfold in Cumbria – reminded me of how Glenn Murcutt talks about the continuity of materials – even the stepped flashings are stone
