Architect Designs Modern, Green Farmhouse
This modern farmhouse in upstate NY is full of natural light, a mix of natural materials and textures. This custom built house fits perfectly into it’s surroundings, drawing on the farming heritage of the area, while instilling a fresh, modern vibe. From an open floor plan with a gorgeous in-eat kitchen, leading out to the great room with fire place. Large windows bring views of the outside in. Geothermal heating and cooling contribute to an energy efficient building design.
The Heart of the Home
The farmhouse layout has a central dining area flanked by the kitchen and service table. This dining and kitchen areas are the heart of the home, and are supported by a mudroom entry (complete with laundry and a half-bath), living space, and a home-school room ready to be closed off from the main living areas for focused activities.
Residential Architect Note: Site and Building Integration
Existing stone walls divide the property in typical farmstead fashion. New stone walls define the entryway sequence in the landscape. The architect for the project also pulled the kitchen out from the main rectangle of the farmhouse layout, and wrapped the walls in stone. Glass walls on both sides of the kitchen allow the space to now be a landscape element as well as part of the building.
Architecture and Structure
Three stone towers support glulam framing. Glulams are a great way to get a timber look and feel without sacrificing old-growth forests. Glulam framing is one of LEAP’s favored sustainable materials.
