Hay-loft
Russia, Hay-loft
Hayloft was originally conceived as an experiment to see if there is a chance for uncompromising architecture to even exist.

The object is located on a very picturesque glade, which has a small but clearly articulated to a single point terrain. Proceeding from economic and infrastructural positions, the hayloft was supposed to be located at the point where several species rays converge from completely different, rather remote positions.

The client who owned a stable and needed hay-loft for it, seemed conservative. He wouldn't agree for something extraordinary. We were ready to hear about the Palladian portico. We decided to try, though.

The object is located on a very picturesque glade. The first time we thought to make a bright accent, but finally we came up that for this particular situation it's quite a strange idea from a function point of view and from some general ethical positions.

The best solution was making a ruin. We rented a truck and traveled to the surrounding villages looking for various old scraps, boards, pieces of roofing, iron and so on.
We really needed all that genuine, not "made old." Then the drawings were developed, where the imaginative vision of the future object was superimposed on the function and already available building materials.

In the end, we decided to joke and, at the same time, to show that the building belongs to art objects. We made sketches, drew some panels and inserted it into the walls.
