A barn for modern living

Uploaded Aug 17, 2013
By ServiceLane
Featuring Sixteen on Center, Inc.,
Tiverton, RI

Situated on a beautiful oak-holly grove in Little Compton, Rhode Island, this beautiful building is the epitome of traditional vernacular form adapted to suit the ideals of our modern lifestyles. The owners are both artists, each having their own studio in the shed portion of the building. This shed portion is clad with fiber cement panels from Germany. The starkness of this form is sharply contrasted with the traditional barn form of the main house clad completely in red cedar. The interior is clean and modern to suit a minimalist lifestyle. Conceptually designed by Caleb Messier, the final design, detailing, contracting and construction were carried out in a collaborative effort between Caleb Messier, Adaptive Craft, Sixteen On Center and the thorough input of the owners. Processing the final design and detail decisions during the course of construction required an intimate knowledge of the project, the materials, and the original vision. Robert Bauer and Bronlyn Jones' artwork can be seen at Forum Gallery in New York and Barbara Krakow Gallery in Boston, respectively.
