All around in Mid Norrland you can find them, the meadow barns in the middle of the fields as a monument of times long past. From the end of the 1900th century until the 1930s they were set up for storing hay for the cattle. Often they were very simply built, made of upright deal, sawn at the local village mill, unpainted or at the most red painted. When at last the tractors took over the farming, the meadow barns lost their importance. Today they are replaced by the bales enclosed in plastic.
In our series of barn houses we reuse the form and expression of the barn. Three architects have created a holiday living with an idiom originated from the old meadow barn, adapted for using it all the year around. Simply a holiday house looking like barn. Arvesund’s barn houses are designed from a basic idea: they should look like barns when you’re not there. Barred up they could just as well be barns with sliding doors pulled across, as a natural element in the scenery.
