Paris studio Laplace has added two new wings to a cluster of disused farm buildings in the English countryside to create a new arts centre for contemporary gallery Hauser & Wirth.

The site at Durslade Farm in Somerset, southwest England, originally comprised a farmhouse, stables, cow sheds, a piggery, a threshing barn and other outbuildings dating from as far back as the 1760s.

One of the wings features an external cloister that looks out towards a pond and a landscaped garden created by Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf, while further cloisters create sheltered areas facing the enclosed courtyard.
