Blair Barn House industrial-exterior

Blair Barn House

Modern countryside living! You wouldn’t think this awesome home would be located in a rural setting in Blair Wisconsin!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

At night the light filters through the screen on the outdoor seating area, creating a comforting glow in the country darkness.
The Blair Barn House in Blair, Wisconsin, is designed by Alchemy Architects, which was inspired by traditional barns without aping their forms. The architects describe the project as "a house that takes all its clues from the 19th century, but updates them for the 21st century." Barn siding is used, but it is held apart to let light in and out, similar to the Sunset Cabin we saw previously. At night the house looks more like an art object or an unfinished building than something that people live in. Regardless, the glow is welcoming.
