HilberinkBosch Architects has created an asymmetric barn in the Meierij region of the Netherlands using wood felled from a nearby site.
The studio has used century-old oak trees to create the workshop to sit alongside its studio.
With nine additional trees, the practice decided to reinstate an ancient tradition. By replacing a collage of obsolete shelters and sheds, the firm built a new barn with locally-harvested materials employing traditional techniques.
A mobile sawmill has cut the fresh tree trunks to the last chip into parts for the new building.
