When you think 'holiday house' a cantilevered silver barn hanging off the side of the hill probably doesn't come to mind.
The Dutch architects of MVRDV (an acronym of the founding members' names) designed the balancing barn, perfectly perched in Suffolk, southeast England.
The barn, which sleeps eight and can be rented all year round at a pretty reasonable price, is the first of five projects from social enterprise Living Architecture.
Creative director of the venture, Alain de Botton, came up with the idea after he felt that writing about architecture wasn't enough - the challenge was to build it.
Living Architecture is hoping to shift peoples' perceptions of modern architecture, and what better way than to live, eat and sleep in a stunningly designed space... or in free space as the balancing barn allows.
