The client requested a “modern farm house that fits in” to the historic neighborhood on the outskirts of Washington, DC. Indeed the precedents from the neighboring 19th C shingle-style homes informed this project’s gabled massing, front porch, and scale in particular. Opening the front door reveals an open floor plan organized around an exterior reflecting pool and formal modern garden. With expansive views of a meticulously detailed landscape, the principle living spaces are suffused with natural light. Created from a warm palette of natural, sustainable, and beautiful materials, the living, dining, and sitting rooms flow together to create a sequence of comfortable spaces carefully tailored to a 21st C lifestyle.
