This project is a retreat for a large extended family. The project was conceived as a compound of small living areas that blur the edges between indoor and outdoor space.

Using the local agrarian Architecture as inspiration, this design sought to create a clean, contemporary modern farmhouse aesthetic – simplifying the Architecture to the fundamental expression of shelter.

Some portions enclosed, others open – allowing the user to define their own relationship to the landscape.
