Chadds Ford Barn

Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania

Built around an existing barn and silo, this residence references the local farm vernacular of Chadds Ford.  A lawn ramp to the front door stretches over a sunken shade garden and breakfast terrace.  On the back side of the home, a walled barnyard is reimagined as a secret garden.  A trellis connecting the garages separates the parking court from an additional patio.  Warm season meadows wrap around the home, tying it to its context.
