Text description provided by the architects. On an estate of 4.5 hectares, surrounded by a century old fruit trees, the client wanted to replace a neglected sixties barn by a contemporary design. The new barn fits to both the landscape and the historical buildings on the estate, where the main building is the monumental farm ‘Rottenburg’. Besides shelter for the sheep and storage, the new barn also accommodates an apartment.

The main structure consists of four timber slabs that divide the barn into three zones: a barn area, a semi-transparent intermediate zone and an apartment. Openings in the slabs offer a view from the apartment in the yard and the old orchard. The semi-transparent intermediate zone connects the south-west side with the north-east side of the farmyard. The facade consists of black-stained Douglas, which contrasts with the raw wood on the inside.
