Home / Showcase / Kendalia Barn Event Venue

The Kendalia Event Barn is an exceptionally wide English frame where contextually late technology fuses with the old to form a vast uninterrupted space. Center columns that would have originally divided the span in half are removed. Forged iron rods suspend the lower connecting ties to the upper ties at the connection of extended diagonal braces and compression timbers to form the a truss system that supports canted queen posts and historic roof rafters. Large divided windows in scale to the high top plate are centered in the the irregularly spaced bays splashing light across the stained and polish ballroom floor.

Even empty, the space feels warm and alive where any visitor feel at ease in a volume that should be dimensionally intimidating. From casual family gatherings to formal black tie galas, events are accommodated with minimal decor and furnishings. The carefully restored historic timber seems to majestically equalize rustic and chic’ finishes for patrons and marries seamlessly in a beautiful backdrop of the iconic Texas Hill Country.
