Architectural transformations

The beautiful English countryside is littered with historical-registered buildings ranging from barns, old mills, monasteries, and derelict utility structures, which some have been converted for residential use. These architectural minimalist transformations are a brilliant and ecological way of reusing what is already there in order to preserve the beauty of their past, present and future in context with the surrounding bucolic landscape.
