The Barn House gains its inspiration from the surrounding pastoral/farm landscape of Merrill’s Cove in Asheville, NC. The powerful design borrows from the endangered vernacular architecture of farmhouses and barns, iconic structures of the New England and Mid-Atlantic States. For this project, sustainability and energy efficiency/conservation are the primary design drivers. The design and construction of the Barn House combines modern building science with traditional building materials and techniques, along with cutting edge technologies.
