ArchiPaper & The Farmhouse
This is a unique, never seen before, unprecedented, surprising, fairy-tale-like synthesis of visual arts and architecture. Two independent pieces of art created by brothers - Boguslaw and Rafal Barnas tell the story of the architectural design in the film ArchiPaper. The film has won dozens of awards around the world and the building - The Farmhouse was consequently constructed.
The brothers have already revealed that soon they will be showing a documentary about a house that was born of dreams!
The Farmhouse is a creative transformation of a historical homestead into a modern residential manor. In the place of five farm buildings due for demolition, we proposed five permeating barns, to create a highly dynamic space. The seemingly random scattered solids were carefully defined by the surrounding landscape, the position of the sun and the function of the building. The house is a well-balanced architectural composition, corresponding with the surrounding landscape allowing the building to be ecological and energy-efficient and providing a human connection to nature.
From the very beginning when I started laying out the design of the house on the foundations of the old homestead, I knew that I had an obligation to create something special. The design needed to reflect and further enhance the existing space that existed in that place for many years. It was not only about a contemporary building but a uniquely balanced space – one which would be the synthesis of the local tradition, outstanding landscape and function. This is how The Farmhouse was created.
