This modern farmhouse located outside of Spokane, Washington, creates a prominent focal point among the landscape of rolling plains. The composition of the home is dominated by three steep gable rooflines linked together by a central spine. This unique design evokes a sense of expansion and contraction from one space to the next. Vertical cedar siding, poured concrete, and zinc gray metal elements clad the modern farmhouse, which, combined with a shop that has the aesthetic of a weathered barn, creates a sense of modernity that remains rooted to the surrounding environment.
Large expanses of glass cover the home’s southern face and capture stunning views of the rolling hills in the distance. 12’ tall trapezoidal window configurations on the second level cap the center gable end above lofty French doors creating a deep sense of connection and transparency between the interior of the modern farmhouse and the natural beauty of the surrounding 30-acre property. Featuring a pool, home theater, and sports field, the modern farmhouse is a true sanctuary from the fast-paced life of the city.
The Glo double pane A5 Series windows and doors were selected for the project because of their sleek, modern aesthetic and advanced thermal technology over traditional aluminum windows. High performance spacers, low iron glass, larger continuous thermal breaks, and multiple air seals allows the A5 Series to deliver high performance values and cost effective durability while remaining a sophisticated and stylish design choice. Strategically placed operable windows paired with large expanses of fixed picture windows provide natural ventilation and a visual connection to the outdoors. A 9’ tall D1 entry door with custom satin glass inlays, cutters, and flanked by side lights creates a stunning entrance to the modern farmhouse. Not only aesthetically exceptional, the D1 door delivers incredible performance values, progressive hardware, and creates an unparalleled experience for both owners and guests.
