New York, 1983-2000

One house made from two existing barns placed end to end. The simple agrarian structures were transformed by the addition of windows, a tower, six dormers, a porch and a pavilion. The new architectural elements are white in contrast to the dark, weathered shingles. Inside, the original constructive systems are preserved. The intertwined rafters, the trusses, the shingle lath are again painted white. Within this shell a double staircase links a series of landings and bridges to bedrooms, in one direction, and to aerie, in the opposite direction. *Won the Architectural Record House Award (1984)
