The two-storey building is characterized by the barn siding that allows for filtered light through openings, and created a slatted sunlit porch.
The ground floor is the main living space with an open kitchen, the upper stair is a sleeping loft and few lower level bedrooms in the cellar.
Inspiration from architect:
Barn Space an open 2-story room with two volumes inserted within. One in steel, the other in ash strips, they provide under-and over spaces like a hayloft.
