Modern Barns

A Cantilevered Balancing Barn

Here's a post from OnSugar blog House of Anais:

Would you be staying in this balancing barn knowing that half of the house is hanging without visible support? Although the drop is small rather than hundreds of feet over a canyon, I still find the idea a bit scary.

Cantilevered Balancing Barn The house itself is special for sure. Designed by Dutch architect Winy Maas, it is built hanging, like many houses in The Netherlands, over the water due to lack of space. The structure looks a bit like a barn, but a very special one, as this one has a metallic exterior. The location, surrounded by green rolling pastures and the sea, is also nice.

Balancing barn belongs to Living Architecture, an organization which supports modern architecture, and can be rented out. They also have other modern rental properties scattered around England.

I found some images of beautiful cantilevered houses, one in particular designed by Piet Blom. Another interesting design direction are the amphibious, floating houses. I think I'll put something together on my findings - there are some very interesting modern houses in Netherlands!
