Barn Studio in Orient, New York by studio a/b architects

In a historic waterfront village on the North Folk of Long Island, this six-stall barn/garage sits on a property line facing an alley. A shed stands behind the barn. The rustic appearance of the two buildings, standing side-by-side, is part of the character of the village. Adopting the appearance as they sit together, the design inserts two box-spaces, a “Semi-enclosed patio” and a “Boxed Light”.

A “Semi-enclosed patio” was inserted between the two structures, revealing only a hint of the interior changes, while providing openings for light and access. “Boxed Light,” a translucent half-box incorporating shelving and a new skylight, was inserted in the middle of the Barn.

The “Boxed Light” subtly separates the workshop from the study. It transmits sunlight directly to the workshop, while diffuse light illuminates the “Barn Room”. In a reversal at night, the study light glows through the partition, as seen from the workshop at night.
