The barn at Fallingwater by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Monday, August 25, 2008

The Barn at Fallingwater is an adaptive reuse of a 19th century heavy-timber barn and its 20th century addition, framed in dimension lumber.
The 19th century structure is a bank barn, built into the side of a hill so that two levels can be accessed directly from grade level.
The barn is used by the architect as a -season event venue for receptions and barn dances
The loft space
The loft space has been part of the thermal and moisture barrier system protecting the occupied space on the lower level. This is a green adaptive reuse project adjacent to the Frank Lloyd Wright's fallingwater.
