Surrounded by farmland in the rural area of Ellington, Field House is a almost 500 sqm residence with single box shape clad in a zinc galvanized metal skin.
I like the silo ladder that ascends to a secret rooftop observatory whose geometry radiates to the heavens.
Inspiration from architect:
Taking cues from an old farm nearby, this simple form sets its back against an existing mature tree line at the upper northwest corner of the site to buffer the harsh and predominantly northwest winter winds. In turn, the south and east walls open up to harness the sun’s warmth in winter months and capture the preserved aspect of the crop field and bird sanctuary beyond. Its apparent simplicity is articulated by specific moments of experience.
