rockhill and associates
Design/build architect Dan Rockhill bought the farmhouse across the road for guest space and to protect his own property. Capitalizing on its Spartan agrarian charm, he opened up a side porch-turned-bathroom, enclosed since the arrival of indoor plumbing. Floor-to-ceiling warehouse sash glazing reveals the porch’s original lines, while filling the new bath with south light. An open shower and a lavatory fabricated from salvaged farm equipment further the rural-modern theme. Our judges deemed the result “a very spare, elegant reuse.” One remarked, approvingly, “You’re still on the porch.”
