The project addresses two themes: the conversion of a barn with a hayloft into a habitable building and the reconstruction of an adjacent but independent farm building, originally used for the production of cheese. The two structures are dealt with autonomously, despite a number of features which allow them to be read as one project. The distinction lies primarily in the feeling that the internal space and the materials communicate to the visitor.
Statement of the jury
The concept’s architecture consistently follows the traditional building style of the region, but also has a very modern and high-quality appearance, especially inside. A lovely example of how tradition can be combined with contemporary design.
