Blue Ball Barn

with Wallace Roberts and Todd

Atelier Ten helped optimize the environmental performance of this highly-awarded LEED Gold building. This renovation manages a balance of historic preservation, high design, and sustainability.

Atelier Ten helped the design team meet the project’s historic preservation challenge through detailed building performance simulation. The change of barn use posed particular challenges in assessing how to best reduce heating and cooling loads and reducing the risk of condensation. Atelier Ten successfully quantified the condensation risk, assessed alternative construction and renovation options, and optimized the shading design on the building addition to keep excessive light and heat out.
