Winy Maas on the Balancing Barn

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.

  1. A small detail, but the English county is Suffolk, not Sussex !

  2. 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.

  3. Thanks @David and @Adam. Updated.

  4. Not that quakeproof…

  5. I like it! Inspiring!

  6. Great idea. I like it!

  7. Is that the cutest architect you’ve ever seen! OMG, I just want to pinch his rosy cheeks! :)

    Also: great house.

  8. I love the swing. A perfect final touch.
