This post-and-beam barn was designed as a garage and supplementary space for a 1795 house, located in the historic district of Guilford, Connecticut. While the house was originally part of a larger farmstead with barns and outbuildings, the property had been divided over time, leaving the house with no garage.Our client requested a separate building, with garage space at the ground level and a flexible loft space above that could be used as a studio or office.

We designed a structure – with fir posts, bents and other structural members – to provide the scale and articulation of other barns of the period. Surrounded by plantings, the driveway creates a formal courtyard between the new building and the original house.
