Black Barn | Pinc


The Black Barn is a prefab designed by the Swedish studio Pinc (People Incorporated). The idea of the form is ancient and comes from viking homes that were extremely narrow, covered by a wooden tarred roof and had visible beams. The volume is simple and its shape offers an interesting interior, a challenging task that the designers solved wisely by using every inch of the offered space. It is, of course, created to meet the new EU energy and insulation standards. I love this idea. Not only is it energy efficient and sustainable but it is also very appealing and has a symbolism to it. I have to say I miss projects like this in my own country. People are building new houses that are not always bad looking but they don’t have much to do with co-creating the cultural landscape. Architects definitely contribute to that and should be aware of who we are, where our roots are and what we want our children to inherit. A part of our culture are the buildings we live in and we could learn so much from our ancestors, especially when it comes to building in a rural environment. I’d like to see more photos of this project although they’re really hard to find. It seems like the detailing is amazing. Vikings are so cool, I want to be a viking. And wear a horn hat. Uuu and have an axe! But then I’m a threat to little children already. And myself.

    Weight Kit, Sno-Thro Cab and Handwarmer Kit for more comfortable snowfall clearing.

    This is very important as unless you do so, you
    could end up destroying your snow removal tool such as a snow blower.
    One of the most outstanding differences is that the Compact 22 covers up to 22 inch clearing width while the Compact 24 covers up to 24 inch clearing width.
