Barn Architecture that has Us Saying “WOW!” Presented by Kentucky Performance Products

Barns these days come in a myriad of shapes, sizes, materials…anything you want, it can (mostly) be done!  Long gone are the days when barns were merely four-sided structures to keep your farm equipment dry from the rain, or to just temporarily “store” your livestock.  Barns now represent friends, home, family, fun, luxury, style, and of course…they must be practical for horses to not totally trash the place.  Here are our top picks for amazing architecture that wow and setups that have us saying, “Can we move in?”

The waves on the roof. Enough said.

More of a suave lounge feel in this one.

The skylights! No more dark aisles where you fumble for your halter (and horse).

A lot of people have been asking about the materials used for this amazing project. Stone and wood were the primary materials, with steel accents in the dutch doors and indoor arena. The stone is a local blend in brown and gray tones that complements the Shou Sugi Ban cypress wood siding from ReSawn Timber. In the interior, douglas fir heavy timber framing is finished in a light stain that contrasts nicely with the exterior burned wood finish. Our client intends to let the siding weather naturally to gray, allowing the burned character of the wood to show through. . . . . . . . . . . . #blackburnarchitects #blackburnequestriandesign #blackburnbarn #resawntimberco #lucasequine #equestrian #equestrianlife #equestriansofinstagram #canadianshowjumping #showjumping #showjumpinghorse #showjumpersofinstagram #sporthorse #sporthorses #equine #chadjacksonphotography #wow

So clean. So pristine.

Circular barn: Impossible to get lost inside.

Super simple and a place for everything.

Not a barn, but we would totally hide in this nook all day long with a book.
