In the Betuwe you can find several monumental farms that show the rich history of the region. As serves for this old farm with stable and barn. The clients asked us to make a design to create an ideal family home. The old stables have been transformed into a large living room with a 'floating' master bedroom. The kitchen is positioned in the old house, where the entrance is completely moved to the new corridor, a transitional space between inside and outside, but also the connection between the renovated house and a restorated original barn.
The exterior of the farm and the barn are mainly restored, except for a beautiful, large skylight. The corridor has two faces. One closed, but of high quality, facade to the entrance side, and one full open facade to the large garden. The entrance side is covered in vertical copper sidings, which fits very well with the materials of the farm.
