Architect Mark de Reus of de Reus Architects designed this modern barn-inspired house for his own family, situated near Sun Valley, Idaho, next to the Big Wood River. This striking residence seamlessly combines practical agricultural and modern building forms for its design. The living spaces feature a two-story gable barn design, while the entry, garage, and terrace areas have a flat roof structure.

The project aimed to achieve a modern barn appearance on the exterior and a contemporary mountain cabin aesthetic inside. The home’s placement harmonizes with the natural riparian forest along the river, with its dark grey and black exterior color palette complementing the Aspen forest surroundings.

What We Love: Local vernacular and a minimalist concept helped to drive the design of this beautiful modern barn-inspired house in Sun Valley, Idaho. Surrounded by dense forest, we can imagine that this home would be a peaceful place to reside throughout the seasons. We love the warm and inviting living room with its wood-clad walls, floor-t0-ceiling-fireplace, and windows capturing the views of nature.

Close-up of that beautiful, unique chandelier over the dining table . . . but no source is listed. I also love the small pendant lights over the kitchen island, but again, no source is listed. Is there any way that info can be shared?
