FOREST RETREAT

A winding drive leads to an unexpected clearing in the trees. On the far side of the clearing, a complex of house forms is visible. As the viewer navigates the drive at the edge of a tall-grass meadow, the forms become clear—a homestead with a wide porch, built with materials that blend into the surrounding land and vegetation. Has this house been here for hundreds of years? The stories imagined about this house have shaped it. The owners close involvement in the process has made the design a true team effort.
