Fayland House in Buckinghamshire, 2009-2013, Design: David Chipperfield Architects, London
A glimpse into the project that the furniture was originally designed for. The home is located in Buckinghamshire on the English countryside.The single-story house is embedded in the landscape facing the views. An expansive loggia stretches across the whole width of the building and meet between the private interior space. The main living spaces open onto the loggia, while the guest rooms, further into the house, open onto smaller courtyards. All the courtyards differ in character and provide close contact with nature as opposed to the long-distance views into the valley from the main living quarters.
