Trilogie de Granges

This project questions typically Western ideals of the contained singularly interconnected home with all spaces feeding into each other. Here we question that, enforcing a direct engagement with the weather, landscape and nature by crossing external thresholds when transitioning between spaces. We proposed a  triptych of barns, each with unique spaces, environments and atmospheres for their particular uses. They tell the story of a more Eastern idea of a distribute home creating a semi communal space in the centre across which everyone must always cross. This microcosm is sunken into the ground and surrounded by a perforated wall, creating a sense of enclosure without loosing the views and connections to the landscape beyond.  Sadly not built due to the client’s decisions not to proceed.
