French architect Laplace & Co has completed the conversion of a farm in Somerset into an art centre for international gallery Hauser & Wirth

The gallery in the village of Burton, is the latest art space opened by Hauser & Wirth, which runs galleries in London, Zurich and New York.

Laplace & Co has renovated the existing grade II-listed barns and added two purpose-built galleries to the cluster of farm buildings.
