This project adapted an existing barn into a studio residence. The design focused on maintaining the integrity of the original stone foundation, wood structure, and interior details while incorporating sustainable design principles and products. Using concepts of perma-cultural living cycles, a self-sustained energy system was designed that included passive/active solar power, dry composting waste, gray water systems and sustainable materials in its construction. The unique character of the old stable and the milking stalls were preserved as features in the dwelling.
