A Century Old Barn Transformed Into A Modern Home With Soaring Ceilings
Looking at this amazing home from Österlen, Sweden all we can think of is how amazing this soaring ceiling is and how airy and fresh the space looks. You can’t really tell that the building is very old. Part of it was originally built in 1901. After being abandoned for a very long time, architect Jonathan Andersson brought it back to life and transformed it into a beautiful and modern home. The converted barn features an L-shaped floor plan and a total of 390 square meters (4,200 sq ft) of interior space.
The interior design is a combination of modern minimalism and rustic charm, white being the main color used extensively throughout the spaces. The polished concrete floors and exposed wood beams complement the white walls and ceilings and give the rooms a simple and at the same time refined look with rustic flair. We love the fact that even though the living area has a super high ceiling and white walls, it doesn’t look cold or empty.
