Located an hour east of Toronto, The Farm occupies a 65-acre site amidst the peaceful green fields of this Southwestern Ontario agricultural region, adjacent to a large conservation forest. It serves as a weekend and vacation home for the client, his grown children, and a variety of friends and family who frequent the tranquil property for relaxation and enjoyment year-round, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Double Space PhotographyComprised of several buildings and structures spread over the property amidst a plethora of natural landscape features, The Farm aims to engage the history and physical attributes of the site while amplifying a relationship with the outdoors. The main house sits atop a shallow ridge and follows a north-south orientation, with the primary longitudinal elevation facing east to capture morning light and a compelling view of the property’s rolling hills, dense thicket of trees, and the lush Ganaraska Forest beyond. An existing pond concentrates activity downslope; continuing on, a winding stream that bisects the property is a calming presence, shaded by the surrounding trees. Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographyThe main house is set back 200 feet from a dead-end gravel road, accessed from an L-shaped driveway leading to the long bar of a building. Its steeply gabled form and exaggerated length suggest a modern interpretation of the vernacular longhouse typology. Extending 153 feet from garage to master suite, the house is clad in cedar siding stained a soft charcoal, a perfect complement to the varied greens, browns and greys of the foliage, bark and rock comprising the landscape. A standing-seam metal roof is perfectly matched in colour, with deep overhangs at either end.Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographyHere, the longhouse form translates into an even distribution of program from public to private functions in a sequential fashion. Additional privacy is maintained through the separation of sleeping quarters: the luxurious double-height master suite enjoys a privileged position with southern orientation and a secluded patio, while the other two bedrooms are located on the second floor of the house. Further, a separate loft space above the garage functions as both an artist’s studio and self-contained guest suite.Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographyMultiple points of entry ensure a degree of permeability along the home’s considerable length: the front entrance on the west elevation is balanced on the east by an operable window wall connecting interior living space with the generously scaled outdoor patio, capitalizing on the verdant and seemingly limitless view. At the north end, the dining room occupies the full 22-foot width of the house and offers a flexibility of function: when the sliding glass pocket doors on either side are closed, the room is a warm, intimate space for gathering; when the doors are slid open, it becomes a breezeway—not merely an outdoor room, but a conduit linking front and back, interior and exterior, east and west.Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Double Space PhotographyA restrained material palette defers to the power of the dramatic site conditions, allowing the simplicity of form and the subtleties of light and shadow to inflect the project. Polished concrete floors in the public areas are balanced by an abundance of white oak used for millwork throughout, and for the stairs and flooring on the second level. The introduction of Douglas fir in the form of an expressed structural ceiling system is a reminder of the inherently rustic origins of the project.Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographyThe Farm was not conceived of as a single iconic house in the country, but as a compound of buildings that engage the compelling qualities of site and landscape in such a way as to maximize use and enjoyment while establishing a greater connection to nature. Immediately adjacent to the garage at the north end of the house, a Zen Garden manifests as a perfectly square, semi-enclosed structure that is meant to encourage group or solitary activities such as yoga, meditation, reading or simply relaxing. The walls are defined by 2” x 4” ipe slats, and overhead, identically sized hollow aluminum members form an open trellis, offering partial protection and cover. Fifty feet south of the main house, a secondary zone focuses activity on an outdoor pool, hot tub and a sunken fire pit beneath another trellis. Small accessory sheds contain a sauna, pool equipment and mechanical functions, and a separate, enticingly compact cabana mirrors the form and materiality of the main house—a perfectly proportioned additional one-bedroom guest suite should the need arise.Save this picture!© Double Space PhotographyLocated some 220 feet east of the main house, the pond exerts a magnetic and gravitational pull down the gentle slope of the site. By day, it is a scenic and intrinsic aspect of the property, inhabited by small wildlife creatures who are drawn to its life-giving properties. By night, in the darkness, stargazing becomes a favoured nocturnal activity for those comfortably ensconced in the Adirondack chairs that ring the adjacent stone fire pit. Beyond the leafy grove of trees east of the pond, the sight and sound of the stream offers a surprising reward; two wooden bridges connect either side of the bank, inviting exploration and a deep contemplation of the mysteries of the forest.Project gallerySee allShow lessMAD Architects’ Harbin Opera House Through the Lens of Andres GallardoArchitecture NewsWhich Architecture Firms Are Building the Most in New York City?Architecture News Share Interior Design: Canada Den Bosche & Finchley Manufacturers: Carl Hansen, Delightfull, Jasper Morrison, Molo Design, Hans Hopfer, Naoto Fukasawa, Sebastian Herkner &Daughters Area:  4000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Year:  Save this picture!© Double Space Photography+ 27Curated by María Francisca González Share 2017 Photographs Architects: Scott Posno Design Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Clarington, Canada ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/891111/the-farm-and-daughters Clipboard CopyAbout this officeScott Posno DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesClaringtonCanadaPublished on March 25, 2018Cite: “The Farm / Scott Posno Design” 25 Mar 2018.
