Donderen Barnhouse by Aatvos, The Netherlands


Donderen-based architectural practice, Aatvos, has designed the Donderen Barnhouse project. The stylish home is located in Donderen, The Netherlands. 

According to the architects: “The owners were looking for a private family farmhouse on a country site in the north of Holland.

“We have created a contemporary house that reflects modern life and the history and characteristics of the site. The actions included a reinterpretation of a classic barn. Think of a barn as a simple building made with cheap and local materials. Make it spacious: store all necessities in an inner house. And the result? A classic farmers barn revisited: a perfect example what you can do with cheap yet expressive materials.

“This barnhouse was among the first ever together with the early work of Onix and Faro Architects, it marks the beginning of a renewal of local architecture back in 2000. It has continued to inspire people ever since.”
