This project involved the conversion of a timber frame horse barn into a space accommodating a variety of uses including a basketball court, a game room, a pub/lounge, a pottery studio and gallery, a wine cellar, and a variety of loft spaces.


Significant structural modifications were required to provide column-free court space.

The well-insulated building envelope allowed the original sheathing to remain exposed within by applying wall and roof panels to the exterior frame.

The basketball hoop swings-up to improve the view outside.  A sliding interior barn-door system was developed to protect the large windows and doors behind the hoop.
