Who would have thought that a 15th Century barn on the Island of Guernsey will turn out to be a contemporary house? La Concha is the name of the house designed by MOOARC, a combination between traditional elements and new styles in architecture. The modern house is comfortable and it combines natural materials like wood and stone.
The façade reveals grey and blue stone and the tiled roof with its roof –top windows fit the surroundings. Another stroke of genius in the design of this house is making the interior completely visible from the outside. The interior has a contemporary aspect and glass is dominant material used. The presence of bricks in the design relates more to the traditional style.
The kitchen and the main living room are the most lit rooms in the house. There is a balance when it comes to the overall design since nothing seems out of place ,the different styles-old and new-combined create a sense of luxury and comfort.
