Built in a Dutch village, the Barnhouse Werkhoven was born from a traditional catalog-home. The classic gabled silhouette is reminiscent of a barn-style dwelling from the front while upon entry, the interior reveals a glazed facade. Half of the structure is clad entirely in glass panels that are supported by timber beams. The windows encase the main living area, affording the room views of the backyard. Due to its positioning, the scenery gives the illusion of living in a garden rather than a residential community.
