A Farmhouse

Influenced by the double lean-to, an early form of indigenous and natural shelter on the plains, a pair of sloped walls under a skylight separate various living functions of this retirement residence. The property is a commercial vegetable farmer’s estate, flat and cultivated on one side with a cavernous, forested ravine on the other. The bedroom wing is tucked under a berm providing protection from the winds while spectacular views to the ravine are exploited to the east , revealed scene by scene as one traverses through each of the living spaces.
