Habitat: Lofty Goals in Chester County
How Archer & Buchanan Architecture turned an old barn into a home for a modern family.
The architects restructured the West Chester barn’s first and second floors to showcase the vaulted ceiling and to create a loft next to the upstairs bedrooms.
Two upper walls were painted in vibrant shades — and one downstairs was redone in a newspaper print — to incorporate the homeowners’ eclectic style.
The retro porcelain enamel fireplace by Malm is a focal point and grounds the high ceiling.
