New Barn, Pantybara Farm, near Newcastle Emlyn
Rural Office for Architecture for Rural Office for Architecture
Contract £80,000. GIA 75m2
The design of this replacement barn in the architect’s farmstead is rigorous and disciplined. The structure of this modern interpretation is in engineered timber while externally the careful detailing ensures a restrained look in timber with a corrugated roof. An austere interior of concrete floor, exposed dry lining boards and plywood house gives the family a temporary home while work is carried out on their own house. A central core separates the two open ends of the barn with two Dutch-styled stoves to provide the heating.
