wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland

wrzeszcz architekci has dismantled an old, abandoned barn and used its bricks to build a new house in a village on the outskirts of poznan, poland. situated on a narrow plot, right next to a forest, the residence incorporates a brick façade with material from the old barn, which adds a historic level to the project and gives it a unique atmosphere. the façade consists of four types of bricks with varying levels of articulation and transparency, which highlight the different zones of the house.wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in polandall images by przemysław turlej

 

 

the house by wrzeszcz architekci is located on a village on the outskirts of poznan, which is characterized by a combination of forests, agricultural fields and buildings, and a rapidly growing amount of detached houses. in a walk around the area, the architects noticed the old brick barns with impeccable proportions, which gracefully withstand the test of time. as such, going a step beyond referencing vernacular architecture in their design, they decided to use it directly, by dismantling an abandoned barn found in the village and using its material to build the new house. wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland

 

 

inside, the ground floor comprises the common areas of the house, combining the kitchen, dining and living room in one large, single space that takes up the entire width of the façade and benefits from a long glass opening that connects the surrounding landscape with the interior. the space is characterized by high ceilings that at times reach up to five meters, while a levitating volume hovering above the dining room contains a bathroom, wardrobe and bedrooms that offer views toward the forest.wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland wrzeszcz architekci uses bricks from an old barn to build new house in poland
