Barns in landscape



Hunge is a modern version of a meadow barn from the north of Sweden. By accentuating the joint between the two floors with big doors, panel and choice of color, we create a modern expression starting from an old form.

It was also with our first version of Hunge as a starting point that we began to work with the studio barn house. On our very smallest version of Hunge – about seventy square meters – we opened it up with windows on one of the gables covered with laths. An airy way of shutting out; but at the same time keeping the light and the view of the scenery.
