Foote Farm House by McLeod Kredell Architects

View all 15 Photos

Foote Farm House is a reinterpretation of the house as a connective structure, one that creates a sheltered space for transition between two external conditions. Designed by McLeod Kredell Architects, the Vermont residence is a simple, unified volume with one end embraced by the nearby forest while the other extends toward the open street. The gabled house announces its presence through its terracotta-red façade, somewhat archetypal for a farm house though the color draws attention to the representational function of the house as a bridge linking the trees and field. The interiors of the residence receive their deserved dose of sunshine through a skylight, which allows the light to disseminate through the two-story space over the kitchen and dining room.
