    Default Dwelling House with Barn

    Dwelling House with Barn by Michael Meier Marius Hug Architekten

    Designed by Michael Meier Marius Hug Architekten this detached conglomerate of buildings outside Schwamendingen got back its urban presence. Acting as an historic witness in an area of multi-storey residential buildings, it works as an identity generator. While the farmhouse still works as a residence, the column-free construction of the barn is thought for public use. The structure of the floor plan is maintained and the valuable wood panelling, the floor boards and the tiled stove are restored in aspects of preservation. The existing layers of paint and wallpapers are reinterpreted. The barn, which corresponds to the surface line of the former building, receives a translucent cladding on the longitudinal fašade. The cuttings in the rough sawn larch planks are reminiscence to the barns in the 19th century. The five trusses divide the barn into their former four segments. Two large gates mark the entrances and reinterpret the function of the treshing floor as a circulation space. The lights are developed according to the enamelled barn lights.

    I want to like it, and I don't. Does anyone actually live here? It looks abandoned or something.
