BROWNSVILLE RESIDENCE

Inspired by the traditional New England vernacular of the connected-barn homestead, the addition and renovation of this 1830s brick Federal home fosters a modern living style while celebrating the historic scale and character of the home and site.

Being my first opportunity to lead a project fully from conceptual schematic design through to construction completion, this experience provided a comprehensive understanding of the processes for resolving field issues and realizing project goals.

Working closely with the clients, I derived details and material selections within the context of the original house. The addition and timber frame barn comprise the first phase of construction. The renovation of the brick house comprises the second phase.

A sequence of details steps down in prominence to reflect the typical evolution of added spaces leading from the more formal living quarters, back to the functional work areas and barn. While adding significantly to the program of the house (completed size is 4,300 sf) the materials, scale and orientation of new spaces allow the original brick house to maintain its prominence on the site.

Completed : February 2006
Site : Brownsville, Vermont
