Residential Architecture: Blair Barn House by Alchemy Architects: “..Alchemy designed a house that takes all its clues from the 19th century, but updates them for the 21st Century. This project features typical barn siding with light filtering through a few large openings, a sleeping loft and bedrooms in the cellar. There is also a “barn space”, an open 2-story room with two volumes inserted within. One in steel, the other in ash strips, they provide under-and over spaces like a hayloft..” A bit of a contemporary wonky barn look, ample glazing, natural light, wood lamella cladding, interesting interior volumes..
