Arend Groenewegen Turns Thatched Flemish Barn Into a Gorgeous Eco-Friendly Office

Dutch Architect Arend Groenewegen has transformed a beautiful old Flemish-style barn that used to store hay and rural machinery into a modern wooden office. Built in the 1800s at the outskirts of Bolberg, The Netherlands, this traditional shelter features slatted walls that allow natural light to filter in and it’s topped by a biodegradable roof made from local dried plants.

Arend Groenewegen retained the character of this old barn-turned-office by carefully restoring its gepotdekselde façade and large thatched roof. The 920-square-foot building’s historic pine wood walls were preserved with traditional black tar and cleverly turned into a brise soleil that filters natural light.

The façade’s interior was glazed, adding a modern touch to the barn’s original style. The office’s open-plan interiors are airy, light, and multifunctional. The large supporting posts are original — but Arend Groenewegen added new brick footings and a wooden cube equipped with toilets, a pantry and a cloakroom. This addition provides practical organization within the beautiful bare space.
