Seattle-based Shed Architects recently converted this Whidbey Island barn into a lovely and cosy living space. Each space was developed around a minimal palette of materials and color, with extensive re-use of existing barn materials.
The Whidbey Island barn was converted into a living space that supports a variety of activities and guests. The architects made use of salvaged cedar siding for the interior wall surfaces (note the drawer and cabinet fronts in the kitchen) and used salvaged wood beams for countertops and benches. "In a very real way, the barn was turned outside in, and then wrapped in a new cedar board-and-batten skin that will weather and show its age well," according to Shed.
