Mellensee, Transformation of a barn into family house, Mellensee (DE)
direct mandat, under construction, 2016-2017
The barn is a purely functional building, that accommodates its different functions in one single volume. The transformation interrupts this single space with closed compartments, the bedrooms and bathrooms, that integrate respectfully into the structural rhythm without subjecting to it’s functional rigor. The left over space is connected through openings in the floor slab to maintain the character of the original building. Openings in the walls and roof compose a sequence of light and shadow during the day.
