UK: Holidays in modern architecture
Living Architecture let out holiday houses around the UK, designed by notable world-class architects. Their properties have been created for use as holiday accommodation, but also to help change perceptions of modern architecture. The properties they've commissioned are located in stunning places and have been designed to be both beautiful and comfortable – they're also surprisingly affordable!
This extraordinary Balancing Barn, in Suffolk, is one of their properties. The 30m long house, clad on the outside in reflective silver tiles, cantilevers and 'balances' over the landscape and has beautiful rural views from its panoramic windows. The barn provides comfortable self-catering accommodation for up to eight people, with two double and two twin bedrooms.
This architectural holidays section lists holiday packages, vacations, short breaks and tours that focus on architecture and the appreciation of building design, be that modern and contemporary buildings or historical architecture.
Tours cover all types of building design: from ancient monuments to modern towers, from historic cathedrals to contemporary shopping centres, and from complex engineering works to simple dwellings. They may cover a broad range of building styles within a particular country or region, or perhaps just a the style of a single notable architect or of a particular building.
