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

The task of conceiving a private home in the countryside south of Eelde 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.
