Whidbey Island Barn Conversion by Shed Architects
The Whidbey Island barn conversion was recently transformed into a unique living space supporting a variety of activities and guests by Seattle-based studio Shed Architects. The program called for a workroom/kitchen, an apartment, a bunkroom, and bathrooms to be arranged within the existing building envelope. Working within the existing envelope of the barn, the design solution attempted to imbue each space with its own character through the use of natural light and its orientation to the landscape. The primary design interventions were the creation of a utility pass-thru separating the bunkroom from the main work space, and the carved entry connecting the apartment to the workroom.
