Barn Conversion Incorporating Rustic And A Few Modern Elements


Architects Thomas Schaer and Prentiss Hale from SHED Architecture & Design were in charge with this conversion project located on a farm in Whidbey Island, Washington. What in the 1970s was a barn is today a lovely home, with rustic elements, preserving the local specific of the farm and incorporating perfectly the natural landscape surrounding.

This barn conversion is a great project, mixing modern and rustic elements and creating decors that are so adorable only because of their simplicity. The public space is all open, the living room, dining room and the kitchen being all gathered together. The owners’ love for fine dishes or books is shown in the kitchen and dining area, where shelves and bookcases display them.

An interesting concept we find in the bedroom, as there are several beds. Having a bedroom that is shared by more than just two persons it’s kind of unusual these days, yet, I’ll admit, a little bit intriguing.
