Slovakian architect Martin BoleŇ° recently designed a chic family home that is modeled after traditional wooden barns. Although barns are practical for housing cattle or farm equipment, the wooden shelters are not usually designed to accommodate entire families. This Slovakian home puts a contemporary spin on the traditional barn design.

BoleŇ° designed the 'DomT' house for a couple and their two children. The building is located in a residential neighborhood, yet it features a distinctly rural design. The home features a pitched-roof and timber cladding, which mimics the shape and structure of traditional wooden barns. Although the design may seem unusual, the home boasts a roomy living space and a hidden loft.

The DomT house demonstrates how traditional designs can be used to inspire modern living spaces.
