The Owner’s were looking for a modern farmhouse to replace the small existing cottage on a 6.8-acre parcel they purchased in Upstate New York. This 2,700 square foot, solar powered home was the result of the Owner’s vision for a home connected to the landscape, the aspect they valued most about the site.
More specifically, the goal for the new house was to blend with the surrounding landscape while amplifying the Owner’s visual and auditory experience of the landscape from interior spaces. The “horizontal” window in the living room focuses ones view down through the lawn and towards the natural wetlands.
The “vertical” window draws one’s eye to a rock outcropping across a stream. The 400 square foot, all cedar screened porch opens towards the same rock outcropping and is cantilevered over the steam, truly well suited for daydreaming. CWB Architects provided both architectural and interior design services.
