It’s A Beautiful Rustic-Contemporary Creation
Seven century-old oak trees were nearing the end of their lives in the Dutch region of Meierij van ‘s-Hertogenbosch, when design firm HilberinkBosch Architects stepped in and decided to turn them into something more lasting and useful.
Thus, the rustic-contemporary masterpiece called the Sixteen-Oak Barn was born. Inspired by traditional gabled farmhouses in the area, the barn house features untreated timbers combined with glass and concrete materials.
The rest of the leftover timber from the felled oaks were all chopped up to use as firewood for the new barn home.
In a design the architects describe as “haphazard aesthetics,” the Sixteen-Oak Barn was constructed of the locally felled, century-old oak trees in addition to a couple of oaks sourced from the nearby Wamberg estate. The barn comprises a carport, storage room, and a workshop / meeting room for office use. There is also an addition loft space located above the storage room.
