Energy-efficient house in the forest offers peace, retreat and inspiration

Art-Barn house in the middle of the woods USA

Art Barn is a remarkable residence in the middle of a forest, designed and realized in 2007 in Greenwich, Cunnecticut, USA by Robert Young Architecture & Interiors. The architects wanted to popularize a life in light, air and in the middle of nature. That House in the woods is a successful combination of modern architecture, economy and ecology.

The one built in the Bauhaus style House in the woods is used by artists as a retreat for creative breaks. The location of the approximately 930 square meter property shows the connection with nature.

That House in the woods is sensitively integrated into the environment and is characterized by its simple geometry and open construction plan. The lush greenery on the facade – blue rain (wisteria), which winds around a metal grille, has a dominant effect and fulfills a very practical function – natural heat insulation. Floor-to-ceiling glazing allows a wonderful view of the forest.

Although the construction is made of concrete, thanks to the lush vertical gardens it blends in perfectly with the forest landscape. The architects have cleverly combined rustic and modern elements in the interior. 2 multifunctional open exhibition halls with around 5 meter high ceilings and polished concrete coverings are available. The open kitchen area is modernly equipped. In the 3-story House in the woods there are still studios, bedrooms, gym and cabinets available. The huge living room resembles an art exhibition and offers its guests maximum comfort and cosiness. The huge chair is sure to be the eye-catcher.

A lovely green building
