Old Brick New House / Wrzeszcz Architekci

House made of an old barn. Second life of the building material. The outskirts of Poznan city are a combination of lush forests, arable fields with agricultural buildings and fast-growing single family housing estates. The designed house was built in a place where these three zones meet. Old, historically German barns, are still characteristic elements of the surrounding landscape. These are brick simple buildings with balanced proportions and precise details that has aged really well. Today, these barns are often abandoned and half-ruined. Despite their years they still prominently distinguish themselves among the new buildings.
