MOOARC developed La Concha, a house that has been remodeled from a 15th Century barn on the Island of Guernsey.
The residence was produced as a fluid, 3-dimensional plan, inspired by ‘The Nolli plan of Rome’ 1748.
The internal volume of the 15th Century barn types the heart of the residence. On the decrease degree, kitchen and dining is position beneath a a lot more formal living room up on a mezzanine level.
A more relaxed living/play space is set at the front of the property, opening out to a terrace.
At the rear, the sleeping block is linked to the residing space by way of the entrance and vertical circulation.
The bedroom block is stepped in across the width of the internet site to let a visual link out into the rear garden from the dining area. The property was conceived as a separate sleeping block linked to the barn via a glazed entrance piece allowing the mass of the unique barn to breathe. The retained structure of the barn has been uncovered, with the inner room for living expressed as a single volume.
