dutch studio overtreders w (reinder bakker and hester van dijk) has designed a temporary
hospitality space on a former farm that is in the process of being transformed into a forest
in heeswijk-dinther, the netherlands. ‘sliced stable’, true to its name, embodies the iconic
silhouette of a barn with two of its four-sides left open to its surroundings. hosting a cafe
and reading area, the project was realized for ‘the woods that see and hear‘ exhibition,
a collective show which aims to respond to our relationship with the land.

the simple wooden structure leaves much of its components bare and unadorned,
celebrating the transparency of the temporary design. partially wrapped in white plastic,
the ‘sliced stable’ generates a communal space that encourages engagement with the site.
a small, one-man lookout is placed to one side, playing serving in place the shape of a chimney.
featuring a long dining table, reclaimed seats, and an operating bar, the pavilion acts as
a natural gathering space for visitors of the event.
