Everywhere you look in this 5,000-square-foot 1850s threshing barn, you can see oriented strand board (OSB), a medium associated more with shuttering around large construction sites than with interior decor.
“We had seen straw bales in here and we started thinking about OSB,” says Carl Turner, who heads up Carl Turner Architects in London. “The idea of using that as a predominant material gave us the idea that everything should be a bit more blocky. We both like Donald Judd and Richard Serra.”
Turner made much of the barn’s furniture from OSB, but the mobile daybed
on wheels is a standout piece and allows the user to catch the sun or shade as the mood strikes.
