How would you like a second home in the backyard that was once a busy barn and is currently in a forgotten, old state? It might sound like a hectic task, but it is one that La Firme pulled off with plenty of panache as The Barn stands tall with its imposing exterior and a modern interior combined ever so diligently. In its modern avatar, the Barn has many of its original traits still constantly intact while on the inside, its spacious 30-foot living area brings a sense of grand spaciousness that is just unmistakable. Wood and modern finishes find space next to one another with ease even as the original framework was carefully reinstalled.

Beautiful 100-year old barn in Quebec transformed into a modern home

The area that once housed the livestock is now the central living zone with the kitchen and dining area sitting snugly next to it. A series of glass windows open up the interior to the world outside and usher in a flood of natural light. Light green cabinets in the kitchen along with floating shelves in the backdrop and blue pendant lights combine to create a lovely and cool kitchen area. Exposed wooden beams that offer structural support in every room also bring textural contrast and visually link one space with the next. A dark fireplace anchors this otherwise neutral area beautifully, a concept that has been adopted in the bedroom as well.
