Home Farm by John Pawson
Alexander Zaxarov
Apr 20, 2020

John Pawson, a British designer known for his minimalism, converted the farming complex that dates from 1610 into a family retreat in the English countryside.

Over the course of more than thirty years, a body of work has accumulated based on the objective of making simple spaces, with just what is required and nothing more, where the eye feels as comfortable as the body. At the heart of everything has been the idea of refining by removing, meticulously paring away until what is left cannot be improved by further reduction: sensual space, where the primary experience is of the quality of light, materials and proportions. During these three decades, every project has represented a manifesto of the thinking, but nowhere is this truer than at Home Farm in Oxfordshire, where architect and client are one.
