The Balancing Barn
The Balancing Barn stands on the edge of a tranquil nature reserve a few miles inland from the Suffolk coast, near the historic towns of Walberswick and Aldeburgh. Clad in elegant silver tiles, the house dramatically cantilevers over the landscape, providing views from its huge panoramic windows over woods, ponds and meadows. The house was designed by the Dutch firm MVRDV, who have won a world-wide reputation for the ingenuity, playfulness and comfort of their designs.
- The Balancing Barn was featured on Channel 4's Amazing Spaces. You can watch George Clarke taking a tour inside and outside The Balancing Barn (NB it is featured at c.19 minutes into the episode).
