Text description provided by the architects. The project consisted of the complete renovation of an existing two hundred year old farmhouse and the design and construction of a new three story tower addition. The addition, a quilting studio and guest rooms, is conceived as a torqued translucent volume with punched window openings that frame particular creek and mountain views.

The time-tested timber framing techniques uncovered while renovating the existing house inspired the tower’s structure. A three-dimensional computer model enabled the building to be constructed as a kit of parts, each pre-cut and coded for efficient assembly. The building’s translucent polycarbonate envelope conforms to the, hyperbolic shape, baths the interior spaces in an even natural light and reveals a sculptural timber frame. The building is the resolutely modern expression of an ancient technique.
