Carved out from the surrounding woodlands, this family retreat estate is fused with elegance, which melds historical and contemporary elements.

With careful planning and execution, the architects, Architecture Outfit, created a strategic plan to relocate a century-old farmhouse, prioritizing its visual impact from the roadway and the preservation of its timber frame.

Throughout the property, a modern main residence, a pool house, and carefully designed landscapes were then integrated around this heritage structure.

The placement of the farmhouse at the site’s edge allows the new, functionally arranged buildings to radiate from a central axis, creating a harmonious blend of spaces both inside and out.

The heart of the residence, the central living space, acts as a gateway from the structured, manicured northern lawn to the relaxed, natural southern garden.

The use of expansive glass walls blurs the boundary between indoors and out, offering intentional views of the verdant surroundings.
