Masterminded by firm Aamodt/Plumb Architects this gorgeous renovated home in the small town of Lincoln, Massachusetts, (population ~ 6,000), about 20 miles northeast of Boston. The original structure was a circa-1950s barn-turned-residence—undertaken by modernist architect Henry B. Hoover—renovated in the mid 1980s to include, according to the architects, an "eclectic facade and sculptural kitchen and entry." In this latest iteration, Aamodt/Plumb clarifies the simple A-frame structure's form, which has been stripped down and re-packaged with simple materials that give its shape pride of place. To Aamodt/Plumb's credit, the firm didn't simply create swaths of open-plan interiors; they instead lent the whole space a sense of openness with ash-wood floors (with cork flooring elsewhere), a new, raised kitchen, smart storage solutions, and more.
