The fourth building history of a farm

HilberinkBosch Architecten as Architects

National monumental farm Walik, a former cow and horse stable has been converted over the centuries into an inhabited farm. The exterior has little historical value due to the many changes and renovation, but the interior is largely intact. That is why, partly over the existing window openings, a new masonry shell and wooden slats are installed on the outside of the farm. A variant new window is added to the stone front. This gives a direct view on the surrounding landscape with the newly laid natural garden from the dining room. The morning sun comes in.

 

The spatial experience in the interior is central, while preserving the authentic elements such as the brick walls and the oak truss. The design of a large interior with open connections gives a view of the roof construction. The TV room has been deepened at the location of the rediscovered lowered compost stable, so that the low-hanging striking fork truss can be retained.

 

The roof construction is opened on the south side with large fronts and a glass roof to let the sun penetrate deep into the home with its light and heat. In this way the glass additions open and heat the previously dark shed spaces. Slats on the glass roof provide shade in the summer months, large sliding doors with special details and skylights ensure a natural air flow in the house.

 

New elements and modern building materials give the interior a contemporary look.  The farm has entered its fourth building history in a contemporary way.
