Barnhouse Donderen is one of the the first barn houses ever built in the Netherlands, a project that maintains the sense of tradition with its surrounding while allowing residents to benefit from a contemporary home.

Situation
Private family is looking to rebuild a farmhouse on a country site in the north of Holland.

Target
Create a contemporary house that reflects modern life and the history and characteristics of the site.

Action
Reinterpretation of a classic barn. Think of a barn as a simple building made with cheap and local materials. Make it spacious: store all necessities in an inner house.

Result
The classic farmers barn revisited: a perfect example what you can do with cheap yet expressive materials.

Did you know?
This barn-house was among the first ever. Together with the early work of Onix and Faro Architects, it marks the beginning of a renewal of local architecture back in 2000. It has continued to inspire people ever since.
