In rural North Yorkshire, a simple agricultural shed becomes a bright and energy-efficient home for a couple and their art collection.
After architect Greg Storrar helped his parents find a place to retire in rural North Yorkshire, England, it was only natural that he—an Associate at the London–based firm Tonkin Liu—also lead the design and construction of his parents’ home, library, and gallery.
