This building was converted into a family home by adding a new house inside a derelict barn. Thus, the character of the old stone structure could be maintained while offering comfortable modern spaces for living. The many views connecting interior, exterior, and the space in between add spatial qualities to the house. In addition, the gap between old and new also enhances its energetic values. The barn finds itself in a symbiotic relationship with the new addition that, in turn, receives some of the old building’s DNA by reusing original materials. Instead of being discarded, the place begins a new chapter by developing its identity.
