The Balancing Barn wrapped in mirror finish stainless steel produced by Aperam (Formerly Arcelor Mittall)  this project was always going to be a subject of great discussion.

Architects MVRDV and executive architects Mole Architecture have never been a practice to shy away from controversial projects, or ones with a little razzle-dazzle, a bit sashay and shake. Previous buildings include Oslo Opera and New Manor.  However this mirror finish panel system settles into the woodland environment gently by reflecting the various colours sympathetically.

0.80mm mirror finish panels used were fixed in sizes up to 900x410mm using the manufacturers design details and CELs own structural design drawings
