A house inside the barn

New life moves into a traditional stable. This new house built into a 200-year-old barn was from planning, construction, and execution conceived from one source. It was essential to the client that as little as possible was changed to the existing building. Materials that were removed have been reused. The former threshing floor is used as a staircase, the hay, and grain room as a kitchen front. Their selection is inspired by the materials used in those days; for example, the walls were plastered with real swamp lime. The new house deliberately stands in clear contrast to the old stable.
