Text description provided by the architects. Alchemists live in the Midwest and we love barns. Our clients love barns. Everyone loves barns. Imagine a house that takes all the great things about barns, and leaves the rest for the cows?

Alchemy designed a house that takes all its clues from the 19th century, but updates them for the 21st Century. This project features typical barn siding with light filtering through a few large openings, a sleeping loft and bedrooms in the cellar.

There is also a "barn space", an open 2-story room with two volumes inserted within. One in steel, the other in ash strips, they provide under-and over spaces like a hayloft.
