A House for a Farmer and His Dog Plus Requisite Outbuildings


Project by Matthew Sander

The site is located in Louisa, Virginia, on a 7-acre produce farm. A tower house is the hearth of the farm with additional functioning outbuildings positioned using the ancient Greek’s polar coordinates system. From a critical view point at the entrance of the house, the farmer surveys the farmyard, additional structures, and crop rows, focusing predominantly outward, toward the landscape.
