Barns 2, 3, & 4 At Wychwood

I thought that I should show you some context of the Artscape Barns at Wychwood. There are 5 of these long barns all attached along their length. Barn 1 is the longest and it as visible as the brick wall in this shot and contains live/work studios and studios. I have shown you Barn 2, the "covered street" and Barn 3 is a community barn for non-profit organization use. Barn 4 houses the Stop Food Centre and its Green Barn which includes a green house & community gardens. The structures in the forefront are part of the water feature for the kids and are really popular during the summer but not now! I'll show you barn 5 tomorrow.

I am really enjoying this series. It's great to see these barns have been repurposed. :)

Hello Pat

The CDP portal roared back into life this week. Have you checked to see that your blog is listed? Who else covers your town, or your region?

Voting for the December Theme Day poll commences Thursday 25th October - this Thursday!
Don't forget, the Theme Day on 1st November is 'The Water's edge.
Now, how to capture the tension on the edge of the water as a dragonfly alights?

I love this place! Too cold for the water feature? Already? I see the barns are dated: 1921 and 1916 and I can't read the third number. Very cool!

Those coloured rings on the chimney are great. Like the way all the barns manage to look different too.

This is a fine place, RedPat.

At this time of year, we have bright light and deep shadows, and most of today's photo was in the shadows. It wasn't cold . . . pretty pleasant for this time of year.

Very cool - give me "artsy fartsy" anytime!
Glad to be back to the CDP blog community, Redpat!
Kind regards from EAGAN daily photo

What an amazing place. I think we need a blogger building.

Reuse is great! I'm all for it.

Your description of this place reminds me of a place I visited in San Francisco that used to be an old Army base and is now converted to live/work artist studios. It's such a wonderful concept. I love the colorful stripes around the chimney.

Love the clean lines of the exterior furniture, knits so nicely with the upgrade on the buildings. The colored bands are really really fun. The place Sharon is talking about it Fort Mason, but Artscape Barns has it way over Fort Mason. These Barns are really really special.

I like the quasi-art bicycle stands.

I can see that kids would LOVE it during the summer months.
