Project Profile: 2sons acres modern farmhouse 

04-26-2013 09:17

This new residence is located on top of a hill on 10 acres of a densely wooded private neighborhood. Through a lengthy process the design focus of this 4,300 sf home was to provide a modern house that captured the spirit of a traditional farm house. The representation of the elements is intentionally ambiguous so that one could read it as being either or neither of those concepts. A new or fresh look at why farm houses capture our nostalgic memories without recreating something from the past was married with the spirit of modernism where the extraneous is removed and represented with clean lines and lack of ornament. The carefully selected location of the house on the site gives impressive views from the house while lending an exciting approach from the road up to the house. The program includes three bedrooms on the upper floor with an open modern combination of living, dining and kitchen on the first floor. The front of the house is shielded with the entry foyer, a guest bedroom, stairs and circulation with the living area overlooking the back. The name of the project came from the owner for their two sons.
