Utilizing optical illusions within architecture can lead to some absolutely stunning results, and the Balancing Barn is a perfect example of this.
At first glance, the Balancing Barn appears to be floating, hence the name. Upon closer inspection you will notice the minimal support system in place allowing this contemporary barn to hang over the ledge in such a dramatic fashion. Reflective steel tiles cover the entire facade of this England based barn. The Balancing Barn house was designed by Dutch firm MVDRV.
