Concept, Design & Process
The principal concept the client asked Marshall Sabatini to carry out was to design a bank-style barn that would blend in with its rural-historic surroundings. When the client visited our office, which is a renovated old-style barn, they were inspired by how a historic-looking space could be made functional.
The project required demolishing a one-car garage. The new custom bank barn allowed for a larger, first-floor garage and storage area, and second-floor, apartment-style living quarters. By positioning the barn into the bank of a hill, it allowed for accessible entrances on two levels.
