Farmhouse : Studio, Gallery and Home for Two
Juliane Mari Myking Eide
The project deals with architectural and spatial fragments and configurations as an inspiration and a physical driving force to create a new architectonic whole, on the basis of a new program. An aim for the development of the project was trying to maintain old, and create new, architectural qualities in an already existing structure - a ruin with a strong physical presence in the landscape.
A new added layer in wood is proposed placed upon the existing structure of stone and concrete, creating new living and working spaces, and roofs sheltering the existing spaces. The original geometry of the barn is kept, whilst new in-between spaces are placed upon the wide stone walls defining the existing spaces. By inhabiting this space a threshold is created, which serves as gallery and circulation space.
