This part of the project was designed keeping in mind the needs of one of the clients who is an artist and an art collector. This clever placement of individual units creates a central courtyard which brings the outdoors inside.
With large glass windows that bring ample sunlight during winter months and a system of shades that can easily switch between privacy and unabated views this four-bedroom family farmhouse proves to be incredibly adaptable.
It is one thing to go to relaxing natural escape that takes you into the heart of a tropical jungle for an unforgettable vacation. It is a completely different experience when you bring home that tropical goodness and turn your own backyard into a stunning ‘forest’ if sorts.
Located on a vast 280 acre farm in the town of Pennsylvania this modern farmhouse blends simplicity of design with comfort energy-efficiency and smart architecture that responds to the specific needs of the site.
