Freiluft barn conversion

Freiluft Architekten GmbH as Architects

Freiluft Creating architecture. Freiluft stands for strong concepts and precise realizations. We consider location and ambiance the key points of our conceptions. We seek to design atmospheric spaces and realize them sustainably.


Thinking outside the box. We are interested in design, arts and architectural discourse – true to the motto (freely adapted from G. Ch. Lichtenberg): Those who know nothing but architecture do not know that very well, either.


Barn conversion, Rüegsauschachen How on earth does one come up with the idea of pouring a huge amount of concrete into an Emmental farmhouse? Certainly, one could find several practical reasons (statics, thermal storage mass or the like...). For us, the house needed something rough and immediate, something that could build up its own world in the former barn and hayloft. A concrete object now cuts through all three floors and supports the old roof. In addition to its structural qualities, it holds all the bathrooms and kitchen accommodations, as well as cabinets and storage space. Large windows open up the view into the impressive attic.
