Old Dutch Farm Renovated with Preservation of Ancient Wooden Trusses

Old Dutch Farm Renovated with Preservation of Ancient Wooden Trusses (1)

Renovation of the old dilapidated Dutch farm with barn, storage shed and separated by a small house. New views of the surrounding landscape, overlooking the charming original massive masonry interior, retaining the wooden trusses and a lovely house with spacious living room, kitchen, bathroom, office and bedroom. The project was recently completed by Joep van Os Architecten in Breda, Netherlands.

The old masonry is one of the eye-Cathers in this farm. The contrast with the sleek floor concrete floor has been captured by an old piece of work plinth. A warm atmosphere with sleek details. The white volume with cooking island, wall cabinets, stairs and study is decentralized at the farm. Behind the wardrobe you walk through a steel staircase to the study above.

Concrete plinths protect the undersides of the wooden trusses. Lighting at the wooden rafters accentuate the structure of wooden beams.

In 2013 we bought an old farmhouse which was to be completely rebuilt. The purchase of our farm was a big dream for us that was fulfilled. We knew very well where we started, but still not sure what we wanted exactly. However, we saw that this farm had a lot of gems. We came back after the great demolition and Joep van Os helped us to make a cozy and modern home. Our desires were focused on a lot of light, preserving the skeletons and a number of original features that had to remain visible.
