Family Farm

Area: 7000 SF addition + 3000 SF renovation

The farm has developed over the years to accommodate several generations of a large family. Drawing from traditional farm and farmhouse vernacular, the volume of the extensive design expands around the original farmhouse to envelope a central courtyard in order to create a common connection. The simplicity in the exterior details is drawn from outbuildings found on the open agrarian landscape blending it with the existing classic American farmhouse. Emphasis is given to creating privacy and a strong connection to light and landscape for each space. The main spaces open out into screened-in porches and patios, whereas the master complex, office and the family suites are designed to maintain privacy. The music room is a special feature where friends and family gather to share their passion for entertaining guests by engaging in the meticulously designed landscape.
