Modern Look

Scandi Barn Look

Barn style homes are on trend. They're loved for their high exposed beam ceilings, open plan living spaces and bold street presence. Ignore the fact the roof line is designed to handle snow. The style requires an elevated steeply pitched gable roof with no eaves. It works best in a minimalist style, when the gable continues down the wall and when contemporary dark grey paint is used.

Some Scandi Barn Homes

The Scandi (Scandinavian) Barn look is used across Australia in rural or urban settings. Aaron Martin Construction showcases their work on a corner block in new development in the Adelaide Hills. Designer Khartel's knock down rebuild in Brisbane maintains suburb character in a fresh way. The slightly Japandi addition in Kew Victoria sits out the back of a heritage weatherboard cottage.
