This stunning home site is located at the edge of a wooded hillside at Bundoran Farm in Albemarle County near Charlottesville. The project developer asked for a site topography analysis and a concept design study for how to build on this fairly steep slope. The design is conceived as a collection of gabled vernacular pavilions of local stone masonry, lime stucco, and wood, carefully sited to respect the existing topography and natural features of the land. The massing, scale, and selective use of materials will create an enduring sense of a farmstead home that evolved and weathered over time. New plantings of native Dogwood, Red Bud, American Holly, and Laurel will soften the entry drive and massing. A thoughtful balance between the landscape and built form should result in the preservation and strengthening of the physical and experiential qualities of the site.
