OPPOSING MATERIALS AND BUILDING TYPOLOGIES BLUR THE SENSE OF SCALE IN THIS ELEVATED FARM HOUSE


 



A large, wide waterfront lot is kept a secret from the street. This farm house is being designed to accomplish the benefits of a two-story, double-height space while diminishing the aesthetic of a massive concrete structure above ground. Treated as a floating pavilion, the second floor cantilevers on top of a series of volumes at ground level that provide different “moments" along the path of experiencing the architecture. Intentionally differentiating the two floors, not just in the use of materials but in typology, serves to emulate a smaller-scale pavilion home while accommodating an 8,000 sqf structure with a massive 30ft. interior ceiling height in the main living area.  Allowing for wonderful experimentation with cladding materials, the architectural goal is to play with the scale of structure by creating a series of “moments” — we do not showcase the water at the main entry, it is kept secret… we compress the space and then….once inside the house opens up with majestically high ceilings and beautiful views of the water.
