Early sketches by architect Helmut Jahn describe the lighting design's evolution and placement of fixtures.

The naturally ventilated barn strikes a handsome pose in the rural Illinois landscape.

Day or night the pool area, the other major new intervention to the structure besides the skylight, is dramatic.

Low-voltage tungsten halogen fixtures define the perimeter edges of the pool volume, while four lines of custom designed linear fluorescent fixtures housed in perforated metal and integrated perpendicularly to the beam structure accent the length of the ceiling.

In accordance with Jahn's preference to keep the view of fixtures at a minimum, halogen spotlights are hidden within the beam structure of the kitchen ceiling.
