Project Statement

New Guesthouse Design

The owners desired a guesthouse and outdoor covered entertainment area to make their home on the farm that had been in their family for years complete.

Our objective was to identify the unique qualities of the original modest ranch house and determine how to enhance those details in the guesthouse without leaving the context behind.

In form the guesthouse mimics the original house in the use of deep overhangs, a natural stone base with rope joints, vertical board siding and grand curved corners at the screened porch. Rust stained concrete floors throughout relate both to the natural stone and the color of the earth in this part of the state.

Addressing the outdoor entertainment area we designed a 700 square foot screened porch complete with a stone fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and a panoramic view of the farm.
