At the former back of the house, a new “barn” addition now houses an open kitchen and breakfast area. Composed as a balance and book-end to the original saltbox form, the addition’s volume seeks to express the organic growth typical of a New England farmhouse passed through successive generations. The barn is joined to the living room by means of a new entry that is now the home’s primary access. At the hub of the re-oriented house, a covered “farmer’s porch” shelters the entry and helps to gather the elongated composite facade with a human-scaled focus and a low horizontal gesture to the still bucolic landscape. The 18th century house proudly addressed the road, but turned its side to the fields. The 20th-century house sneaks a peek at the landscape, while maintaining respect fo the road. Now, in the 21st-century, while preserving a dignified facade to the public, the house has bloomed toward the fields, and addresses the landscape with a humble vernacular grace.
