First look: MVRDV's UK debut

This is the first look at MVRDV’s contribution to the Living Architecture project in England, the first project for the firm in the UK

The ‘Balancing Barn’ will be located near Thorington in Suffolk and will be completed in Spring 2010, when the house will be open for letting.

Living Architecture has commissioned other houses by Peter Zumthor, Jarmund and Vigsnæs Architects, NORD and Hopkins Architects.

The AJ reported in April that Zumthor, the 2009 Pritzker-award winning architect would be working on his first UK project, a modernist building in stone and glass near the village of Chivelstone in Devon as part of the Living Architecture programme.

Living Architecture is a commercial venture that will operate in a similar way to the Landmark Trust, letting properties for corporate functions or short stays.
