Restoration of 200 Year Old Barn Respected

History Over 200 years of history and colorful local stories came with this timber frame structure.  Layer upon layer of changes and cover-ups needed to be stripped away from this circa 1800 Dutch barn.  As the architect the greatest challenges here were technical and legal;  changing from a retail to an assembly space triggered careful code reviews for fire safety and handicap accessibility.  However, beneath all that was the fun of taking a badly neglected building and recycling it into an energy-efficient Photosensualis Photography Gallery.
