A musical family connects with nature—and each other—thanks to this home’s 34-foot-tall light well and sprawling, open communal spaces.

Bright light fills the dining area.

"Living better for this family translated into being a space that enabled creating memories with loved ones and encouraging a sense of play for kids and parents alike, all while living a healthy life connected to nature."

The wooden stage provides an ideal spot for impromptu family jam sessions.

Connections
Designed for a tight-knit family of musicians, this home encourages play, creativity, and connectivity by illuminating the power of natural light.

The architects designed a wooden stage with their clients' musical interests in mind, including a place for impromptu jam sessions, as well as an open play area for the couple’s three young children. Naturally lit from the light well above, the stage overlooks the first floor, further exploring the dynamic spatial relationships that this home fosters.

Floor-to-ceiling windows bring lush forest views to the living room.

While the open floor plan helps the family stay connected to each other, the design of their residence also fosters another important intimate connection: with nature. An 11-foot-tall, floor-to-ceiling window wall along the full length of the house beautifully frames the lush forest in the backyard—breaking down the division between interior and exterior space.

Abundant Light

This suburban home celebrates the outdoors and promotes accessibility, designed for the needs of each family member.

Low-profile sills make it easy to wheel the girls around the home.

Abundant Light
"It was really important for us that all of our entrances were accessible. The low-profile [sills] allowed us to both have great, open windows with terrific views, and wheel the girls in and out very easily across them."
HOMEOWNER

Communal Spirit

A modern farmhouse embraces its idyllic surroundings and fosters connection.

The home’s screened porch and deck make it easy to enjoy the nearby meadow and mountains at any time of day.

Communal Spirit
"I’m proud of the fact that we found a way to make a connection to this rural landscape with a modern language. The homeowner feels like she has the best of both worlds."

Architect

Venting picture windows in the kitchen offer views of the community’s shared land.

Communal Spirit
This new farmhouse blends community-minded living with a country landscape. Combining abundant windows with a narrow footprint, the design facilitates cross-ventilation as well as easy indoor/outdoor living, no matter the season. Venting picture windows line the kitchen counter, offering the homeowner ventilation and views of the community’s common land. "We talked about having a kitchen that would have no upper cabinets, so she would see the sweep of the meadow beyond," said architect Greg Wiedemann.

Swinging French doors flanking the fireplace lead to the screened porch.

Communal Spirit
In the living area, expansive windows on both sides of the open living area reinforce this connection with the outdoors. Swinging French doors flank the mahogany-wrapped fireplace and provide easy access to the porch.

The homeowner especially loves this screened porch and deck, where she can enjoy the outdoors day or night. "She spends a lot of time on the screened porch because it straddles the meadow and the mountains," said Wiedemann. "And it’s directly accessible from the living area and the kitchen."
