This curious-looking house is surrounded by a beautiful hillside meadow and gets to enjoy uninterrupted views of its surroundings. It’s a project created by studios Birdseye and Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture and it finds inspiration in the local farmhouses. We should mention that the house is located in rural Vermont where it’s typical for structures to be built into the hills that surround them. With that in mind, the architects came up with a barn house design that takes advantage of the sloping land in a really cool way.
The wood cladding and expansive glass surfaces in combination with the gable roof give the house an eclectic look with both rustic and modern influences. To achieve a similar style inside, the designers used a minimalist palette of materials and colors such as exposed steel, plaster, concrete with wood accents. The living spaces are situated on the ground floor and extend outside onto a deck. The outdoor areas include a hot tub built into the deck and a fire pit with cozy seating around it. The bedrooms are situated upstairs where the best views are but the house also has an additional level which is below the main floor and digs into the hillside. This is where the garage and a few service areas can be found.
