Project Description

2011 RADA
Custom / 3,000 Square Feet Or Less / Merit

A pin-oak allee leading to nowhere set up a drum roll on this small farm. The owners planted it in 1994, letting it grow to create a place for their future house. Architect Mark McInturff's finishing flourish is an elevated box that neatly sidesteps the axis, "like a bull with a cape." The house’s carport and second-story porch straddle the drive, so you can look down its length. Lifting the living spaces also lengthened views of the rolling landscape. A judge pronounced it "too sweet for words," adding, "The porch is wonderful. Couldn’t you spend a day reading right there?"
