Bult from the ruins of an aged agrarian outbuilding, the Owl's Head Mountain Barn Conversion offers a secondary residence in Quebec. Every piece of the original structure was salvaged, numbered, and reinstalled to ensure its agricultural integrity remained intact while a new standing seam metal roof brings a modern complement to the weathered facade. Although the exterior retains its rural roots, whitewashed walls, marble finishes, and steel-frame windows transform the interior into a contemporary dwelling. Existing wood beams create a natural divide among the open living spaces and soaring 30-foot ceilings make room form expansive glazing focused on views of Sutton Mountain.
