Farmhouse Addition and Renovation
Located on an idyllic rural Pennsylvania site, the intimate scale and simple massing of an existing 18th century farmhouse and its outbuildings became informative elements in the design of this family room and master suite addition. The purposefully sited addition acts as a threshold from a new entry to the expansive site beyond, and functions with the existing house and adjacent guest cottage to capture space around a new patio, creating a comfortable outdoor room. A thoughtful organization of space and fenestration regulates daylight, controls views and opens living spaces to the beautiful landscape, while respecting the integrity and presence of the original farmhouse structure.
