Bedheim Castle, Sh/leep barn
How can one cultivate building culture in the countryside?
The existing agricultural initiatives will be expanded and made more economically viable through the development of a garden nursery, organised around communal and social principles. The experience and results of these developments will additionally feed back into the academic context and into the architectural discourse. The forthcoming ‘Bedheim Fireside Talks’ represent the beginning of a campaign for better quality rural architecture.
The first self-build project to be undertaken by the residents of Bedheim Castle is the conversion of a former outbuilding into the ‘Sch(l)afstall’. The two-storey building will be a space for events with kitchen and store room, and will also provide temporary lodgings for guests including the accompanying sanitary facilities. The building is a timber-frame construction made of locally-sourced wood and the exterior should be completed by winter 2017. The residents’ experience of the process of development and construction will be made available as an open-source resource. In March 2017, the IBA Advisory Board recommended promoting this sub-project to the status of an IBA Project.
