New York farm with collection of “cousin” wood-clad buildings

Architecture firm Worrell Yeung has designed a farm in upstate New York featuring a cluster of wood-clad buildings. The structures are arranged in a way that encourages interaction and communal living among residents and visitors. The design includes a barn, a main house, a guesthouse, and several smaller buildings for storage and workspace.

Leverging the familiar architect trope of using the language of the surrounding land, the project is clad in a dark metal roof and custom dark green stained cypress in a varied batten pattern, the main house references and updates agrarian vernacular.
