Top Ten Rustic Residential Buildings around the world



Rustic Architecture can be described as using old elements that may seem "worn out or rusty" and incorporating them into a new structure that has a function like being residence for someone. Here we have a list of our favourite top ten rustic residential developments around the world. #Rustic #Architecture #Residential #Residence #Estates #wood #rusty #elements #home #house



1. The Jackson Barn


Architect: Carney Logan Burke Architects


A old barn in USA was falling apart until architects got hold of it. The already rustic barn was refurnished with a modern rustic look by adding a huge glass facade and modernizing the interior to create a extraordinary residential home. #Barn #Glass #window #interior

3. Elmo Swart House


Architect: Elmo Swart House


The architects took a old Western Cape thatch chalet and transformed it by adding a new modern structure to the original design which does not take from the chalets rustic style, but adds to it perfectly. #chalet #RSA #Cape

4. Mrizi Zanave Agroturizem


Architect: Plisatelier


A rustic guest house located in Albania is a magnificent restoration project in which a damaged open gap on the corner of the old building was beautifully glazed instead of replacing the stone. This technique allows the house to become modern but maintain its rustic roots

8. Natural Westcliff Pavilion


Architect: GASS Architects


At first glance one would see the Natural Westcliff Pavilion as a rustic designed house with its stone cladding; however the main element used here is steel which supports the whole structure. The modern design was well integrated into its natural surroundings to create a harmonious blend. #stone #pavilion #steel

9. Mar Azul Concrete Home


Architect: Bak Architects


One would not think that a modern invention like concrete would be able to be blended into a design that appears both natural and modern at the same time. The Mar Azul was integrated into a hill to better blend with its surrounding. A great example of this is the Mar Azul concrete house in Argentina. #concrete

10. Black Mountain Farmhouse


Architect: Acm Design


The main objective set by the client to the architect was to fuse and blend a form of Japanese design; with hewn details of an old Pennsylvanian house. The results are a humble rustic masterpiece
