Located on a wooded family property, the Maineville Residence takes the theme of an iconic farmhouse. With the creation of a dog trot by a detached garage, a partially covered terrace was inserted along the south façade, overlooking the woods and pond beyond. The north face provides a more formal entry sequence. The farmhouse shape with its lean-to addition provides a regimented container for the open plan of the first floor, and the explicit plan of the second floor. The client being a self-taught artist and furniture maker personally furnished and installed the cabinetry and hardwood floor. Despite the modest cost, the project contains a material richness and gallery-like quality that embodies design economy.
