RV architecture has divided the triangular plot of the house into a small front yard and a big back yard, situating the building in the middle of the site. a wooden, curved element extends from the garden to the interior, embracing the services of the house: the kitchen cabinet, laundry-room, toilet, cloak-room, storage.
for the construction of the barnhouse, the architects have used four wooden beams, located on top of the side-walls and on the two interior walls between the bedrooms. on one half of the house the roof lies on the walls, while in the empty half of the house, three wooden columns have been placed to support it. the connections of the building parts are kept as pure as possible: besides three wooden sliding window frames, the glass is placed directly into the construction, while there are no fascia’s or finishes.
