Inspired by an old European stone barn, we modernized the concept to create a livable residence for a fun, active family of four and their three pups. For an updated interior, we took elements from the barn and incorporated them into the design to give a sense of old-world charm. The stone wall in the kitchen carries out to the exterior, which gives the impression that the wall is original to the property. We mirrored the stone in the kitchen and placed it on the fireplace, which opens onto the kitchen and entertaining areas. These two stone elements served as the foundation everything else was built around.
