Sneak Peek: A Barn, Reborn

November 1, 2012

By Maria LaPiana

Old barns have inspired cool living spaces for as long as there have been, well, barns…but there’s one in Wellesley that takes adaptive reuse to the next level. The former owner of this barn, Boston-based sculptor John F. Paramino, used it as his studio. The current homeowners have transformed the space into a glamorous great room (emphasis on “greatâ€) featuring a statement piece that Paramino left behind. Hanging over the barn door is an intriguing bronze study commemorating the 300th anniversary of the City of Boston. To see more, check out “Special Spaces†in the January/February 2013 issue of New England Home.
