Barn-Like Modern House Takes Shape
This new, modern, energy efficient, home is currently in the design phase and is slated for fall construction in Williams Hill Development, a unique, “green” residential community located in Charlotte, Vermont. Inspiration for the house came from the owners’ interests in juxtaposing rustic, traditional (barn-like) elements with sleek, contemporary forms. The merging of urban loft with hay loft, both inside and out results in the dynamic interplay of textures and materials, while the reinterpretation of a utilitarian building type as a sleek dwelling presents opportunities for thinking outside the salt box. There are some really playful elements in the house– a ladder leading up to a cozy part of the loft, sliding barn doors throughout (some quite large), windows that change in shape and scale to frame views and vary the experience of each space.
