Massing – This home focused on minimizing the building(s) footprint, but still engaging with the landscape in a meaningful way. The home’s footprint is 30’x30’ and because the site slopes to the north we can create a walkout basement -adding to the home’s overall square footage. The Entry Porch is a steel structure that physically links the Home with the Garage, but it also allows one to walk along the highest point of the site and overlook the landscape.
Project Concept - The intent is to design a series of Contemporary Farm Homes that will meaningfully merge design, science, technology, and construction - to create architecture that will enhance everyday life by taking a holistic approach to the design and construction process.
These Homes redefine the suburban homes by having it artfully engage with the landscape. Mindful of budgetary considerations, theses homes have been designed to be functional and cost-effective, yet aesthetically appealing and environmentally conscious. Simply stated – These series of homes merge the understanding of architecture, engineering, landscape architecture, and the environment.
