This barn serves as the main area to socialize for a California family retreat. Big Sur Barn was completed by Studio Schicketanz, a full service architectural firm based in Carmel, California. It was relocated from the mid-West and refurbished for this purpose, according to the Indian building principles of sthapatya veda. Studio Schicketanz installed new siding, windows, infrastructure, and introduced carefully-designed interior finishes, as well as reclaiming and re-using any unused original material for trim, interior doors, and cabinetry.
