Text description provided by the architects. The building owners have been slowly renovating an old barn built in the late 1800's. This, their last bit of unfinished space is decidedly more contemporary than the rest of the house.
The clean lines and detailing of a modern space highlights the dynamic volume. The primary goal in the renovation was to preserve as much of the openness and height as possible that existed in the raw space, but were required to add a few walls for program privacy.
The new interior walls are shaped to echo the existing roof lines and a new light scoop funnels light into the vaulted space.
