Modern Barn Dining Room

This historic gambrel barn was partially destroyed in a fire. The owners commissioned Specht Harpman to design the rebuild so that the barn would remain contextual with the other buildings on the 8-acre site while the interior was radically restructured to create a free volume. Polished concrete floors blend with exposed maple framing and custom woodwork to create both elegance and comfort.

I love this! What kind of clear coat did you use for the plywood?

It's most likely a clear catalyzed lacquer.
We would have done many samples and picked out the best one on site.

The table was one of the few surviving items from the fire that destroyed the original barn.
