Modern Barn Bedroom

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.

The bed came with the owner. CB2.com often has very similar models.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to On an Architect's Bucket List: To Live in a Barn
Of course, some salvaged wood flooring in an earth tone can soften up all those shiny, modern surfaces.
In this bedroom, wood walls run along the sides while a taller white ceiling with boxed-out beams makes up the center portion over the bed. The design is like an inversion of an exposed wood structure with white drywall below it.
