The Farm House by Cindy Rendely ArchitexturePosted: October 21, 2011
A Toronto-based couple desired a retreat that would provide a contemporary take on country living. After finding a 100-acre property with rolling cornfields and a barn, they asked architect Cindy Rendely to help them create a comfortable and modern house that would be sensitive to its rural setting.
Design concept and solution: Taking cues from the original barn located at the edge of the property, Rendely designed a new, 3,135-square-foot, rectangular building interrupted along its length by a two-story volume that houses the master bedroom suite above and a second bedroom below. To ensure that the house was truly rural in character, the clients requested a gabled roof, which Rendely exaggerated in pitch and clad with aluminum to complement the neutral tones of the exterior wood. A one-story artist’s studio completes the bar-like volume on the other side of the two-story structure
