Canton Farmhouse

The Canton Farmhouse Project is an exciting new build project that has me focused on the Farmhouse Style Home with a modern twist!  This decidedly American style is experiencing a major resurgence, appealing to those who prefer the classic, comforting style of a simpler time. It's a blend of architectural details, most easily recognized by its covered porches, simple forms, and natural finishes.

The farmhouse style is defined by tastefully simple forms arranged to suggest the home has gracefully evolved over the years. Materials and textures are kept simple and sourced locally. The style is familiar, yet can be adopted to modern day preferences. 

My approach will be to respectfully relate the new home to the surrounding environment, design a home that is tastefully simple in shape and proportion, and introduce forms and textures that are reminiscent of the farmhouses traditional characteristics. The twist will come in the details.  Modern detailing will elevate the familiar style to create an unexpected paired down simplicity.
