Farmhouse Addition by Wyant Architecture
By Freshome.com on Jul 03, 2012
Have a look at this intriguing architectural combo defining a residence in Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA. Implemented by Philadelphia-based studio Wyant Architecture, the project consists of a modern design addition to an existing 18th century farmhouse. According to the official press release, “the existing house, with its wide plank wood flooring, rustic hearths and intimately scaled rooms was appealing to its new inhabitants, but it lacked the modern spaces and amenities they desired to support a contemporary lifestyle, and offered few connections to the beautiful setting”.The new residence meets these objectives by remodeling the existing structures and transforming them into home offices and bedrooms for children. The addition itself accommodates a generous family room and master suite, while acting as a “bridge”, directing the inhabitants towards the new outdoor patio. Abounding in natural light and displaying a variety of materials, each room of the house inspires an overall cozy feel.
