We designed this house and its outbuildings as a series of straightforward volumes arranged in a striking composition. On the exterior, cedar clapboard siding and wood windows are complemented by a galvanized metal roof and stacked stone walls. While these materials and the massing of the structures celebrate the area’s vernacular architecture, our design language on the interior is decidedly modern. A two-story screen porch connects the living spaces, a series of spare volumes and planes. Our precise architecture provides a counterpoint to the surrounding 100 acres of wooded rolling hills and active beaver ponds.
