Architecture 24h-18101bz

Recently 24H-architecture designed a new ‘farmhouse-like structure’ in the northern part of the Netherlands. At the square base of the building, a wooden roof was build that is tilled towards the prevailing south-western wind blowing over the open polders.

With big overhangs the roof protects the structure from wind and rain as well as creates covered areas.

The covering of the roof is being constructed of locally won reet. Its waiving pattern reflects the wind, like it makes waves in the water.
