Julian King Architect is the brooklyn based architect who has created this Yuscany Barn House, a house centred around a bathroom representing the womb in Tuscany, Italy. The residential project involved converting a barn into a residence for a retired writer. The interior leads visitors on a spiraling route through the building, culminating in the bathroom.
A skylight at one end of the bathroom’s curved ceiling forms the focal point of the project.The project was awarded first prize in the Shinkenchiku Residential Design Competition 2009.
The winning design was the renovation of an old barn in Tuscany, Italy, into a place for the client (a writer) to retire in, and [re]write her life story, which investigates how perception, and the manipulation of it, can be used to convey meaning.
