Set in a transitional place of natural diversity, the edge of woods and field, this 3,115 square foot home is in itself architecturally transitional. Our clients requested that we begin with classic Vermont farmhouse architectural forms and that we edit away all unnecessary gestures and detailing to reveal the simple aspect of non-ornamented architecture. The result is an architectural composition comprised of smaller roofed forms assembled in the way children might play with building blocks to build the residential complex. At the same time, our goal was to reflect a quality of quiet edginess, much like the site itself. Generous and playful use of windows brings in winter light and connects the interior of the home to the outdoors.
