One look at British designer John Pawson’s Instagram account, with its staggering 369k followers, reveals one of his passions to be photography. The feed is a celebration of light and its effect on materials, landscape, interiors and buildings; there are few words, and only intermittently featured is his lock-down puppy – a cockapoo named Lochie. “Although the aesthetic strands running through my work are pretty consistent, the influences feeding into the design process are typically eclectic, and even the most unlikely subjects can provide food for thought,” he says. Of late, the images focus on Home Farm, their country property located in the Cotswolds, which forms the backdrop to a new cookbook, a collaborative production with his wife Catherine, named Home Farm Cooking. Once a derelict series of rural buildings including a 17th-century farmhouse, cottage, stables, a barn and pigsties sprouting giant hogweed, there has been a complete shedding of generations of detritus, an architectural paring back combined with a considered material insertion and careful planning of spatial flow.
