The concept of this stone and wood barn was to create a retreat for the owner of this Ridgefield, CT property. The brand new ‘old’ building fits within the historic context of the compound and includes a main living space, a pub room complete with wet bar, wine cellar, gym, library/conference room, outdoor living and dining space and extensive outdoor kitchen with large pizza oven. The structure is nestled in the landscape adjacent to the pool and reflects a fusion of rustic and modern styles with sleek vertical wood siding juxtaposed with natural stone. The main living area features 21’ exposed timber framed ceilings overlooked by a separate loft lounge area. The ultimate gentleman’s sanctuary, the barn represents the true lifestyle of the client with a contextual architectural design.
