River Point rustic-bedroom

River Point

River Point is a new house that incorporates a row of picturesquely disheveled old sheds and barns into a connected whole. The aim is to play up the idea of organic growth over time, without jarring contrasts between old and new buildings. The sheds set the stage, one of them acting as a gate lodge that you go through to get to the house.

The language and materials of the house are compatible with but distinct from the sheds. The gambrel roof of the house sweeps out at the eaves in a graceful curve to broad overhangs that shelter generous windows. A stair tower with expressive, exaggerated roof brackets also signals that the new house isn’t an old farm building.
