La Concha House by MOOARC
It has been ages since anyone posted about a house/architecture/ or something to do with a building but we are back! That is sad, because there are incredible designs everywhere and that come out daily. This one is certainly one of those deals!
This 15th century barn found on the Island of Guernsey was remodeled by MOOARC. Here is a little description from MOOARC:
The house was developed as a fluid, three-dimensional plan, inspired by ‘The Nolli plan of Rome’ 1748.
The internal volume of the 15th Century barn forms the heart of the home. On the lower level, kitchen and dining is position below a more formal living space up on a mezzanine level.
A more relaxed living/play space is set at the front of the house, opening out to a terrace.
At the rear, the sleeping block is linked to the living space via the entrance and vertical circulation.
The bedroom block is stepped in across the width of the site to allow a visual link out into the rear garden from the dining space. The house was conceived as a separate sleeping block linked to the barn via a glazed entrance piece allowing the mass of the original barn to breathe. The retained structure of the barn has been revealed, with the internal space for living expressed as a single volume.
