Embracing, Effortlessly Luxurious. A property along one of the few remaining maintained gravel roads throughout The Plains and Middleburg, following a storied mountain range, primarily surrounded by one thousand acres of conservation land. Careful not to displace the natural elemental beauty of the site, The Roothouse concept creates a space of utter tranquility growing from the ground and stronger with time. Be enveloped by its warm interior or instinctually encouraged to play in its surroundings. All methods and materials were selected to complement this organic ethos, finished with humble, lasting integrity. Materials will include natural wood interior walls, floor, and ceiling; Indirect architectural lighting for enhanced natural ambiance; Honest stone and concrete for durability; and full-height windows and doors. Dictated by the site, the house rises on piers above hundreds of surface boulders along a verdant slope. The floor is placed for a level entry with an elevated exposure at the opposite end. Preserving as many trees as possible provides a screen of bright green foliage contrasted by almost black tree trunks. Glass reflects the site's image, while the vertical charred siding mimics the trees. The home is hidden in plain sight. The unforeseen gift is that this might be the furthest East one can find such a site, with the ultimate privacy and convenience, at once. It is currently featured at the Venice Biennale Architettura 2023., with Carter + Burton Architecture.
