In this short film made by Dezeen and Oliver Manzi of WopFilms, architect Winy Maas of Rotterdam firm MVRDV talks about Balancing Barn, a house in
Sussex Suffolk, England, completed late last year.
At some point in my life, I want to live in a house like the Balancing Barn and own a real Calder Mobile.
A small detail, but the English county is Suffolk, not Sussex !

Just to echo the note made above; the barn is located near the historic towns of Walberswick and Aldeburgh, just inland from the Suffolk coast.
