Westchester Modern Farmhouse
Merging a new and more human, modern farmhouse aesthetic and the bones of a post-war production house, this major remodel and addition creates a home with a sense of place and belonging. Our design inspiration for this home focused on the characteristics of the location both from a design perspective as well as social perspective. Using the farmhouse as influence, we are creating a modern yet nostalgic design aesthetic – touching on the elements of home, family and permanence updated for modern living. This neighborhood is well-known for its great sense of community with an emphasis on families. The design of the house reflects that with a community-oriented front porch that creates a connection between the neighborhood and the home. The great room with adjacent convertible office / additional bedroom works well for growing and extended families. At around 2000 SF the house employs a strategy of compression at the entry (in floor area only) and vaulted expanse at the living area. This transforms the experience for the home’s occupants and creates a secure and inward facing environment – perfect for game nights! The gallery hallway provides a needed transition away from the public spaces to the bedrooms wing – while staying bright and open. Completed in 2019.
