#349 - Hidden beauty 2

After much googling, this wooden structure remains a mystery to me. Is it a granary or a barn? why is it in a middle of housing estate? (see wide angle to understand what i'm talking about)

The lower part of the structure was built of cement and as tall as I am (+/- 5'7"). So, I could only photograph the wooden ceiling to get a nice angle. I love the amazing wood design! Can you feel the strength of the works? Would be great to convert into some museum or any public facility. It's a pity that such a beauty is left with no one caring for it...

I know this is a lengthy post for relaxing sunday. Hope i didnt make you yawn . .Happy Sunday!

update 24/5/07
the barn was common storage for maize.
the structure is protected history property.

Nice shot. And I'm yawning not because of sunday [it's monday already] but because of the stacks of notes I'm reading. It's going to be a crazy monday tuesday and wednesday of me. But at least I'm feeling fresh after seeing your photos :)

BTW, I guess it's a barn for feeding horse? :D

It reminds me of these old hay lofts we still can see in the Alpes...Nice wood work and nice shot. Have a good week!

Z said...

I had the same thought as Alice. I haven't gone inside any of them, so I don't know what they look like.

Kate said...

It looks to me like a structure that was started and then abandoned, for one reason or another. I, too, love the lines and shapes. Anything geometric has great appeal. Have a good week, Kris!

lovely geometric composition

denton said...

It looks very historic. I'll bet there is a story behind it. Do you have historic preservation societies in Hungary? Is so maybe an email with a link to your post will being an answer.

Denton,
am sure there's one. Since I wanted to post this, i'Ve concerntrated my googling to szentes only. Anyway, we will check with a knowlegeable council man for further info. Fingers crossed!

Kate,
at first that was my impression, however, from the surroundings and the residual wooden gate i think it must be something of a history value. Otherwise the new developer would've built over it ...

Alice / Z,
yes, that too crossed my mind, those grand high wooden ceilings, i dream of one for me holiday home ..hahah, but first we have to collect the money to buy one :D

Emily,
sounds like hectic schedule! wednesday will arrived soon enough, dont worry ;)

Zsolt,
chinese zodiac suitable for men are horse, dragon...as for tiger, i know its not good for women. For me, generally the describing are quite accurate but plus other factors to consider, background, education.. etc.

Jing,
time now is Monday 22:26! watch a tv series and will call it a day :)

wish everyone a wonderful week ahead and thanks for stoppiong by! :)

It looks like a big "csűr" to me. Hmm... on thin ice at the edge of my English.
It wouldn't be a barn..... because csűr is a structure often found on a farm (or in Little Towns in Hungary;) and used for storage of animal feed, mostly corn.
Growing up there, through the slats, I recall seeing the yellow corn still on the cob stored in structures like this. They are usually fairly open so air can move through easily - to prevent mold growth.
They are usually off the ground, I guess to keep rodents and ground level moisture out. But they tend to be narrower and taller. This one looks pretty big, a mega- or gigacsűr? Dunno... but totally agree it is worth keeping and turning it into something.
I would keep its character and leave it as an open structure - no walls. How about: "A csűr” – a summer photo gallery and coffee / tea house". Cmpetition for Pano.

interesting look too, from the outside. those beams really look pretty strong!
looks like something for storage ...
...wonder how old the structure is...

Lessie said...

I agree -- an intriguing and beautiful structure.

Kris said...

Istvan,
you're right! someone from the town hall confirmed that it was storage for maize. One ex-officer from town hall classified it as protected property. I wonder if they intend to add a plaque or as you suggested make it open as a gallery..

Maiylah,
now that i know it is in the list of protected property ,will check for more info. ;)

Thanks again all for your visits!
