When New York studio General Assembly Takes on An Old Barn

Every house renovation episode of home makeover TV shows pretty much ends up with a barn, however General Assembly’s latest finds itself with a very original take on the theme. 

GA reimagined an old horse barn, rebuilding it to become a one of a kind guest house. Wood cladding throughout creates a warm atmosphere, while clean white walls cut through the space to keep things light and create a unifying band of contrast. We used patterned concrete tile throughout to separate and define key areas. The wood burning stove is surrounded by terracotta colored concrete tile of our own custom design, while the bedrooms are defined by high contrast black and white tile and kept cozy with in-ground heating. Re-using as much of the original barn as possible, we refinished the existing horse stall doors by blackening the steel and inserting obscured glass to create unique bedroom doors. – shares General Assembly,
