A John Pawson Masterpiece for Lease

June 26, 2012

Hankering for a holiday in the English countryside, with a bit of architecture thrown in? John Pawson's Tilty Hill Barn, a minimalist masterpiece, is available for rent.

Located in tranquil surroundings in the Essex countryside, Pawson's Tilty Hill project is a conversion of an 18th-century Dutch barn, forcefully propelled into the 21st century. The single-story house wraps around a large courtyard area (used as a horse enclosure); the interior is as tranquil as the surrounding countryside. For rental information, go to The Wow House Company.
