Modern barn design: large glazings and simple form

Until now, the barn was associated with a country utility room where grain was stored, and now it is gaining new life. Modern architectural designs still draw on the idyllic tradition in terms of: a simple form, a rectangular shape or a gable roof. Natural finishing materials also play a very important role here. The facade is decorated with architectural details in the form of natural cladding with the use of wood or stone. Large glazings are what distinguishes a classic barn from a modern design. Windows covering the entire wall and at the top of the house make the structure light and open up the space to the horizon. The designs in which the entire wall has been replaced with glazings are impressive. Due to large-format glazing, the feeling of isolation from the garden or the surrounding nature is lost. The huge glazings that adorns the facades are characteristic for buildings styled like modern barns. The use of, for example, large HST lift and slide door will make it even easier for us to come into contact with nature.
