Barndominium | LoJo - architecture and design

Barndominium | LoJo



Barndominium was designed by LoJo, The Barndominium is a contemporary elaboration of a historical archetype, establishing a dialogue between a modern live/work program, and the vernacular barn typology.

The project is ?floated? above the site as a metric to gauge the subtle slope of the Texas landscape in contrast to typical methods of development, which level the natural topography to pour a slab-on-grade. More than an aesthetic decision, the raised foundation resists problems associated with the high clay content found in Texas soil, developing a ?crawl-space? which provides access to underfloor mechanical, plumbing and electrical.
Photography: Blue Lemon Photography As both an economic and environmental strategy the workshop is mechanically separated from the living area, allowing for an actively conditioned living environment and a passively conditioned work environment throughout most of the year.
