Set among a vast, scenic greenery of the Cambridgeshire fens, this monolith, uniformly black structure has been completed earlier last year by a London-based practice Carl Turner Architects. Developed as a guest house, studio or meeting place, the semi open-plan, sterling board-clad interior of Stealth Barn offers three separate sleeping, living and dining areas as well as a kitchen and a bathroom. Built within a budget of £30K, the development has recently been shortlisted for the Architect’s Journal Small Projects 2012.

More about the project:

 

‘Sitting in the exposed expanse of the Cambridgeshire fens, the Stealth Barn is a bold, simple form, reminiscent of the barn it accompanies. Placed perpendicular to the existing barn, it stands to create and define a slightly more sheltered and casual garden which melts into the fens, a hint at the memory of a former farm yard. Stealth Barn is a sharp black mass – a shadow of the adjacent barn or a silhouette on the horizon. It is a robust exterior wrapped with a restricted palette, devoid of fussy detail, and formed to withstand its exposed position.’
