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, barnsâ€¦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 â€œgreatâ€) featuring a statement piece that Paramino left behind. Hanging over the barn door is an intriguing bronze study commemorating the 300thÂ anniversary of the City of Boston. To see more, check out â€œSpecial Spacesâ€ in the January/February 2013 issue ofÂ New England Home.
