Architectural Studio Ziegler Converts an Abandoned Barn into a Private Home
By Magaly • May 16, 2017
The Parisian Architectural Studio Ziegler had the task of remodeling this old barn space which stands on the edge of a wheat field that was formerly used to store fodder for horses.
The project intends to be just as rustic as its rural context, without any added sophistication or extraneous details.
Its exterior was covered with zinc, giving a new appearance to the immense construction.
The interior, enveloped by a magical aura that seems to transport us in time to distant epochs, is in perfect condition. Its raw brick walls and huge wooden ceilings in which we see the beams protruding and running from one end to another remind us at every moment that it is an old barn.
Window lines create a space that serves to separate the line from the wall from that of the ceiling, giving the space natural light and ventilation.
Of scarce furniture in a contemporary style, we find that the most striking room is the kitchen. There, on a floor of hydraulic tiles, we see a kitchen of minimalist style in shades white, gray, and black, with modern light bulbs that fall from the high ceiling and provide light to the space during the night.
The swimming pool has been roofed over and, with its blue waters, tempts and invites us to enjoy it.
