The Barn House | Buro2


This is one of my favourites. Completed in 2005 the Barn House, designed by the Belgian Buro2, used to be an old barn and they decided to make something of it. Rita Huys, the architect for the project, wanted to keep the building in touch with the surrounding landscape. Her aim was to make a residential building without disrespecting the culture, history and land in which it is embeded. She says ‘After all, the house’s best room is, in a way, the outdoors.’ In an era where architects are forgetting about local identities and hardly realize that they are the co-creators of the cultural environment, it’s very refreshing to see that somebody still handles all those things delicately.
