Strange Shed – Balancing Barn?

Posted on : September 9, 2011

The shed/barn house is 100 feet long and only 50 feet of the base is on solid ground? There’s even a window in the floor to look down to the grassy area below.

Balancing Barn - Would you feel safe?

This is a holiday home that you can rent that is a few miles inland from the Suffolk Coast in the UK.  Some renters of the property worry if too many people go to the end it will tip! Maybe only a few too many meat pies for lunch could tip the scales of balance. You can rent this  “The Balancing Barn” (www.living-architecture.co.uk) that sleeps up to eight people and costs from £638 for a four-night midweek stay. The house was designed, built and owned by the not for profit group Living Architecture – whose co-founder designed this, Mr. Alain de Botton. Very different Alain.

Heres another view of the amazing Balancing Barn:

Strange Shed? For Rent

 They say as soon as you enter and walk across the threshold of the balancing point – you feel strangely in danger of it tipping! The floor window above the swing would also add to this.

Don’t think our portal frame sheds could delve into this magnitude of architecture?
