"Our solution was to maintain the original form and footprint of the barn, while incorporating traditional materials into contemporary details."
Programmatic elements include a basketball court, performance stage and a home theater, as well as guest rooms and a full kitchen. A roof terrace provides sweeping views over the rural landscape. Two sets of NanaWalls open the building to the exterior much like the original barn doors. The south-facing NanaWall provides easy access to the pool, while the north-facing unit provides a backdrop to a performance stage.
In February 2014, the project was honored with an AIA Design Award from the Eastern New York branch of the American Institute of Architects.
