Sweeping meadow is inspiration for new home

Natural Landscape Inspires New Home Design

A sweeping meadow was the canvas which my client had purchased for his new home. How to work with a site is an early decision in the architectural design process.  One of the “patterns” in Christopher Alexander’s “A Pattern Language” recommends that the best parts of the land be maintained;  in this case the meadow was left open. With that in mind, I [and my client] reviewed many ways to place the house to work within the surrounding environment.
