Spotted on Arch Daily, the Orchard House in the Czech Republic by Nacházel Architects speaks to our desires to live more simply (who wouldn’t want to escape to this tranquil farmhouse)? The architects reclaimed the structure for a vacation retreat, retaining its original stone/brick walls and painting the exterior a uniform white; inside, they covered the stone walls in white stucco and added a ceiling of birch plywood and sliding partitions, creating a more modern arrangement.
