Fi McGhee and Sean Perkins
A complex of agricultural barns is transformed into a series of
residential spaces in which the refinement of the newly inserted
elements, such as full height glass walls and low partitions in white
plaster, contrasts with the simple directness of the original structure.
Alterations on the exterior of the U-shaped complex are proportioned in
such a way as to respect the character of the structure. Rather than
cutting inappropriate window openings into old walls, the interior is
lit by large scale sheets of glass that sit directly on the ground and
make the original pitched roofs appear to float.
