A barn turned into a dream home.

In Thal near Graz (AT), a new concept was used to turn a former farmhouse into a spacious family home. The appropriate use of materials gives the wooden barn its modern as well as rural style. Mayr-Melnhof Holz Gaishorn supplied the perfect building material for this project. MM Crosslam was cleverly integrated into the spacious living area.

The concept foresees the reuse of a former farm building as a new home for a young family. The existing barn was hardly changed in its agricultural expression but adapted to the new use in the interior. Thereby, according to the tradition of agricultural buildings in the area, mainly natural materials were used, especially wood. Precisely placed openings provide a view of the hilly landscape. An intelligent spatial concept creates generous living spaces for the family, organized on two floors.
