Lovely light house

Today I would like to take you to the United Kingdom to show you the magical atmosphere that surrounds the Dairy House, designed by the architectural firm in Charlotte Skene Catling Sommerset. Layers of oak wood alternating with blocks of laminated glass on the walls are the key elements for this former dairy farm in the English countryside.

By filtering through the wood and glass, natural light produces an effect of mystery and seduction which is getting around the house during the day and at night casting a glow on the terrace. While in fact the building is functional in the privacy of those who live there, its boosting the relationship with the landscape, in a fascinating way. Isn't this a light house to dream of? So simple but so cool:-)
