Can Buch barn. Structure up rising

This week we made the structure of Can Buch’s barn.

Can Buch’s barn is part of a great rehabilitation project throughout the big estate, together with the farmhouse and the adjunct building, in the municipality of Sant Aniol de Finestres. 

The barns are always the harder architectures to project, since the change of program respecting the original building. This transformation is usually in conflict with the existing typology; three very hermetic facades and a totally open façade.

We have tried to maintain this essence and for this reason we have chosen wood, not only as a structure, but also as a south facade.

We have totally transgressed the initial structural logic where there was a great stone pillar and a huge beam. We propose a more elegant and more suitable four wooden pillars structure, where we placed the stairway on the north facade, reaching large open spaces on the south facade.

As a bioclimatic strategy, in the main façade, which has large windows, we have located a pergola on the first floor balcony; and a shady terrace, to protect openings on the ground floor.

In front of the south facade we can enjoy a fantastic era (traditional terrace) made of slabs that complement the program of the house. 

The next phases to be executed are closures, roof, slabs and finishes.
