Studio Farris Architects transformed a small barn into an office with meeting room, library, office desks and a resting/reading area. The original façade was restored and new openings were created in a functional way.

 

A new “box” was designed and inserted into the original volume, and consists of a new shell that accentuates the pure form. This box-in-box system allows to improve energy efficiency and avoid any chemical reactions with sulphates in the ground and walls of the original farm. Instead of creating an extra floor in the existing volume that would take away the perception of the whole space, an autonomous furniture object was placed into the space, referring to the original farm and rural area.
