Modern Farmhouse Addition

So here is this farmhouse in Virginia from the 18 century that sits on something like 500 acres and has all kinds of crazy views. You would think that the addition would be pretty straight forward and seamlessly blend right in. Nope. The owner and architect had some other sweet ideas to showcase. They wanted to bring the outdoors in as much as possible and basically take advantage of nature.

The addition is set right at ground level. You can see how they ran the bluestone from the entry right into the glass enclosed pavilion. This view really gives a great perspective of what they wanted to achieve in the overall design with the large glass panels.

They utilized stone from the site for the fireplace and also constructed the chimney chase with board-formed concrete. A little rustic quality to the modern design. You can see a ton more photos here.
