DUMMERSTON, VERMONT. 2002-2004. A house for two painters of 2600 square feet sited at the end of a dirt road in the hills west of Brattleboro, Vermont. The house is first perceived with its dominant “semaphore” element swooping up out of a great grassy expanse of meadow. The long one-story shaft of the house runs along parallel to the meadow’s length, housing two studios, guest bedroom, bathrooms, and master bedroom. The “semaphore” arm intersects this shaft to project out across the meadow and capture the views of endless rolling grassy topography ascending up towards the north, and falling away towards the south. This volume houses the living room, dining room, and kitchen on the first floor, and at the high end, a loft overlooking the living spaces below. From there, the view finds the peak of Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire directly on axis.
