2017 Black Barn
This timber framed family home clad in Sou Sugi Ban timber, references humble black agricultural barns, many of which can be found around the East Anglian countryside.

The building aspires to have as little impact on it’s surroundings as possible both environmentally and physically as the barn hovers over the meadow below.

Structure Workshop collaborated with the architect to develop a timber scissor truss structure which rises as the roof transforms from a flat roof to pitched gable with the rising trusses tracing a hyperbolic curve. At the gable the frame structure cantilevers out from masonry walls below.
