Modern Black Barn in a Holiday Setting

Simplicity and functionality are what currently distinguish modern holiday cottages. These were the guiding principles for the investor who decided to build an escape from the daily hustle and bustle of the city

Modern Black Barn in a Holiday Setting

The location of the building on a hill in the central point of the area ensures a perfect view of the surrounding landscape. However, this would not have been possible without the glazing in the gable wall, which allows for admiring nature on one hand while providing a passive source of light streaming inside. The modern holiday cottage was constructed using frame technology. The gable roof is covered with metal sheeting, and the facade is clad with SILESIA boards from Wood of Fire, charred using the Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique.

A holiday cottage is, by design, a place for family and friends to gather during vacations, but it will only be used periodically throughout the year. The investor’s concept involved creating a wooden facade in such a way that it would not require periodic maintenance, allowing for enjoyment of every free moment surrounded by nature. Therefore, when selecting materials, durability was taken into account, which will be tested during the winter season when the cottage is not inhabited. The choice fell on facade boards made of charred wood from Wood of Fire, which met all the investor’s expectations.
