RIBA East Award for Studio Bark

Congratulations to London based Studio Bark on the 2019 RIBA East Award for Black Barn, set deep in the Suffolk countryside.

The design is a modern yet sensitive interpretation of the black agricultural barn, a typology that has scattered the East Anglian countryside for centuries. Black timber cladding of the exterior and exposed structural timbers reference a vernacular language through this contemporary re-imagining.

Its shape is designed to have a minimum impact on its environment and its form is evolved from environmental considerations. This includes solar heat gain, shading and passive ventilation.
