  • 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. In contrast to the compartmentalized layout of the farmhouse, spaces in the addition are bright and expansive, with a strong physical and visual connection to the landscape. The footprint of the addition acts as a threshold from a new entry to the site beyond, and functions with the existing house and adjacent guest cottage to capture space around a new patio. Stone from adjacent fields was unearthed for the new construction, as it had been for the original house, and natural materials sympathetic to the existing were used throughout
