a farmhouse

FARMHOUSE_05

Another vernacular form taken from my Oregon drive.  This one, the study of roof masses, with a four-gabled volume over a hipped porch.  I’ve taken this to it’s logical extent, with square-in-square, and a continuous, cubic central ‘house’.  The reality is that this is no house whatsoever, at least not at this scale.  Perhaps more of an elaborate cabin.  Miesian stairs offer access from all four sides.

The final drawing represents a different formal operation on the same floor plan, with a single pyramidal roof replacing the hips and gables, echoing Asplund’s Woodland Chapel.
