Barn House by Inês Brandão Arquitectura
Recouping a building with 50 years ‐ half lodging, half horse shelter. The point is to keep up existing recollections from a space that, once, was the stage to such changed encounters ‐ rustic stories blended with stories of youngsters from a disputable time.
In the vicinity of such an extraordinary spot, as the stable, is secured it and choose it as the hero of the new home of a youthful developing gang.
A solitary new component is embedded in this space, amost like a furniture piece, that thought is complemented by its own particular materiality – painted OSB. With a little spending plan (the other objective), it is vital to make a minimized component, uniting all the new capacities – kitchen, toilets, stockpiling and staircase.
This “furniture” is major in the compartmentalization of the social territory of the ground floor, separating the space between entrace range, lounge room, dinning region and kitchen. The top floor, wich served in different times, for drying grain, is overlocking the social region and fills in as a retreat space and working zone.
The emergence of this piece would need to be produced using something that, in the meantime, would have an auxiliary part and would assist me with communicating effortlessly this thought of furniture.
The decision of utilizing OSB, a biological and financial material, was very simple, because of its auxiliary attributes and its pliancy. I knew, that with this material I could make all the single components from this model – dividers, entryways, kitchen and capacity cupboards, stairs and even the floor on the highest point of the model. I utilize the sort 3 of OSB, that can bolster large amounts of mugginess – a critical point of interest when you need to utilize it in moist ranges.
It was importante, for me, to make a visual difference between the floor (in portuguese pine) and the white dividers and rooftop, yet it was likewise critical to accept the composition of the wood. The dark shading on OSB sheets helped me at this point.
