A Barn House in the Countryside in Donderen, The Netherlands by aatvos

 
May 31st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: aatvos

Background

The task of conceiving a private home in the countryside south of Donderen in the North of the Netherlands raises the question as to how far the existing typology is suitable, without resorting to historicizing architecture. This local typology is strongly determined by the simple Drenthe barn: straightforward, at a right angle to the road axis, centered in the countryside, without a privacy layer, functional, a single construction layer with roof. Farms fitting this description have already existed for centuries.

The confines of the topographical site were decisive. As on the Portuguese and Genoese coasts, it was important to design a project that could marry the rugged topography of the terrain, and give rise to a building in its slope.

A large rooted tree sets the ground for an expansion project to a centennial home.

A low-impact intervention

Located in the Plateau Mont-Royal, a centennial home welcomes a family who wish to breathe new life into their space and establish a new dialogue with its surrounding environment. With a vision to respect the home’s original character and preserve the large poplar rooted in the backyard, Microclimat designed a low-impact intervention for an addition that would occupy a small portion of the garden. This new space would blossom from the home through two new large openings in the existing brick wall.
