The Barn Studio

Rowland+Broughton Architecture and Urban Design as Architects

Set within the exclusive mountainside community of Starwood, just minutes from downtown Aspen, Barn Studio is part of a family compound that will eventually include five or more distinct dwellings. A goal for the project was to embrace the unique features of the existing structure, including a singular rogue shape and formidable stone exteriors, while updating it with contemporary finishes and furnishings.

 

In addition to Barn Studio, R+B is providing both architecture and interior design services for the entire grouping of buildings. The goal is that each has a separate identity, yet all work together to form a cohesive whole that speaks to the site’s history.

 

The natural beauty of the site, along with the heritage of both the overall ranch and the existing structure, led the Barn Studio design team to focus on blending old and new elements and maximize existing open volumes. Several of the original elements of the project were retained, including wood beams, railings, unique floor patterns and a light-collector intended to shine light at a certain point in the home during the summer solstice.

 

Other aspects of the original structure were in need of updating to improve the usage and enjoyment of the building. Upgrades were made to a small kitchenette and bathrooms to improve functionality, while a curved, subgrade workout space was transformed into a media room.

 

Upon establishing a clean, modern palette for interior finishes, including white plaster walls, white-oak wood floors and millwork, and glass tile, the R+B team specified a contemporary furniture plan. Certain key pieces, such as a Benchcraft dining table, was custom-designed and outfitted with hidden storage space. Sustainability was addressed via a new energy efficient boiler and solar shades to cut glare and heat gain while maintaining the view of the outdoors. The replacement of large-format windows provided a direct connection to the natural surroundings while reducing solar heat gain.
