Minimalist glass pavilions

Minimalist extensions are the norm in the UK, where more and more people are seeking sleek, stylish and functional environments within shells of historic houses. Rather than tearing down traditional country houses, barns and other vernacular structures, modern glass pavilions are created by thoughtful contemporary interventions and historical preservation. The idea of pairing away anything non-essential amidst a backdrop of gleaming white walls, ceilings and expansive floor-to-ceiling glass, is often credited to British minimalist architect John Pawson, the so-called father of modern architectural minimalism. 04-home-chiswick-london-675x34106-home-chiswick-london1-622x575(above) Private Residence in Chiswick, London by Found Associates
