Bjarne Mastenbroek, the founder of Amsterdam-based SeARCH architecture firm, is responsible for redesigning of old farmyard with various outbuildings to become a single-family house. The livestock barn which formed the stem of the traditional T-form farmhouse is demolished and replaced by a new building. This new extension contains the entrance, kitchen, workspace and garden shed while existing barn contains guest bedrooms. Large conservatory separates both spaces. The freestanding barn is retained with an option for a future swimming pool conversion. The load bearing construction of the extension consists of a series of solid prefabricated wooden plates. They define the building’s internal finishes and influence the quality of the interior space. Even though SeARCH is known for designing modern environments this house was designed on emerging interest in farm architecture.
