Project Description


Jury comments: "The guesthouse design is a modern interpretation of a vernacular farmhouse with a reference also to the church on the grounds. The simple forms, appropriate scale, material and color choices for this project create a sympathetic backdrop for the garden. The figure/ground of built/ planted/open areas is skillfully composed and show deference to the original church, on which ground the guesthouse is deftly fitted in its “green” periphery. Materials in the garden and materials of the guesthouse anticipate each other and the result is that of harmony and contrast. The large overhang of the gabled roof creates a welcoming terrace, while the clever design of the aperture in the overhang brings in light and offers views out to the gardens. This is a good example of a contextual project that packs richness of design in a simple program."
