Bank Barn Renovation contemporary living room

Bank Barn Renovation

Bank Barn Renovation: Wynnewood, Pennsylvania

Thick fieldstone stone walls and a solid hand hewed chestnut post and beam frame provide the existing structure. The Barn, built in 1862, is set into a gentle slope with an entry court and koi pond providing a new foreground to the house. The existing two story wood frame space, that once contained bails of hay, is enclosed to become the new entry, gallery and dining room. A large opening in the south facing stone wall connects the interior of the house to the landscape. The interior of the house plays like a big tree house. Lighted from above, all the rooms of the house are placed in this space using walls and volumes to partition public from private spaces.

The light was a custom design for my clients. It can be reproduced but it is specific to that location.

Hello msdufenhorst!
Yes, that light fixture looks like a custom made piece, very similar to what we carry! We carry so many exotic pieces of many styles and colours and can be custom made just the way you envisioned it!
