UK-based architecture firm Snook Architects has converted an 18th-century barn called the Cat Hill Barn found in Yorkshire, London. The result is a modern home featuring earth-toned bricks and a large floor-to-ceiling glass panels.

Originally, the Cat Hill Barn was constructed as an architectural shed and now, has been successfully transformed into a modern home that is comfortable and stylish at the same time.

The interior space features pegged oak beams that can be seen from the double-height kitchen and dining room. The first floor consists of the living spaces including the kitchen, the living room and guest bedrooms, while the second floor features a gallery and two bedrooms.

"Planning of the project concentrated on creating drama within the existing structure by focusing on the tension and release formed between constricted single-height spaces and the double-height volume of the barn," says the architect of the space.
