The Hebron Home marks the inaugural house project by Benjamin Oliver AD and, for a first design, it’s impressive. The project began in 2011 when the land was purchased in Hebron, Connecticut with the remains of a barn. They chose to build a new home that preserved the legacy of what once was with a modern, New England barn-style residence for a homeowner that loves horses.

Both the interior and exterior’s surfaces are full of texture making for an authentic feel without giving it the feeling of having been decorated. It totally feels as if they retrofitted a barn and turned it into a home – not a brand-new home built from scratch.

Mixing industrial and modern with rustic touches throughout, the feeling of the home is both warm and inviting.

The interior feels bright and open with large windows and white finishes keeping the spaces light.

Sight lines from the master bedroom to the front of the house remain clear and open helping the spaces feel connected, as well as providing a sense of security.

Found elements are shown incorporated everywhere, like in the light fixture hanging above the stairs.
