Coughlin Architecture have designed the Q Hut, a modern take on a barn, which has been transformed into an escape from the city for its owners.

Located in Accord, New York, the hut was first purchased as a prefab steel Quonset hut, which was then assembled as an open barn.

Later, the gable walls were constructed, followed 4 years later by the interior build out, transforming the open steel shell into an eclectic home, suitable for the owner’s vintage collections.

The interior is bright and open, with high ceilings and plenty of windows. In the living room, there’s a fireplace for cool nights, and sculptural pendant light hanging from the ceiling adds an artistic flair to the space.

Tucked away behind the kitchen is one of the bathrooms, as well as a bedroom. Stained concrete floors with radiant heating can be found throughout the interior.

The stairs, the loft and the shutter polycarbonate windows allow visitors to experience the tallness of the space. The black steel railings on the stairs contrast its white surroundings.

The upper floor is home to the master bedroom, that has a window for treetop views, and a curved ceiling due to the shape of the hut.
