The Balancing Barn

What happens when your engineer had a little too much (okay a lot of) fun with cantilevers? Behold, the Balancing Barn!

Designed by the Dutch firm MVRDV, The Balancing Barn is new rental house located near the Suffolk, England towns of Walberswick and Aldeburgh.

It's a startling feat of engineering - 50 percent of the barn hangs in free space. Leasing will begin on October 22, 2010.
