A Barn in the Countryside by Kwint Architecten

By Inthralld on Jun 05, 2012

Farm houses have become quite the inspiration for many modern day residences, and it looks like the trend will continue forward thanks to projects like ‘A Barn In The Countryside.’

Designed by the Dutch team at Kwint Architecten,  this beautifully constructed dwelling is quite spacious spanning an area of about 3,444 square feet. The home was built into an existing farmhouse structure located in the city of Eelde within the Netherlands, maintaining original components like the gabled roof blended with contemporary design elements. The home is constructed from steel framework paired with light wood cladding that be opened up for plenty of circulation or completely closed for maximum privacy. A dark wood deck surrounding the property provides some nice contrast to the overall project.
