Field House by Wendell Brunette Architects
With a deep commitment to the environments in which they work, Wendell Brunette Architects is recognized internationally for their diverse portfolio of private and public projects.
Focused on experimenting with the boundaries of light and space, the firm's work is conceived by taking into account the surrounding context of a project site in addition to the building itself — resulting in spaces designed to foster engagement. Their strategic use of natural materials including durable leather, and dedication to taking an active role in the communities they work in, completes the firm's creative approach. Following this practice, the firm's Field House project takes cues from its surrounding agricultural landscape to achieve a design that marries functionality with artistry.
Inspired by industrial forms like the farm silos found on neighboring properties, the 5,000 square foot house is in the shape of a single box, coated in metal to complete the aesthetic. Strategically built to optimize the surrounding environment, the home is positioned so that sunlight is able to enter the space at all times, from different angles throughout the day. With the house's stark geometric build and purposeful placement, a visitor is able to physically follow the sunlight as the day goes on — from the sunrise in the east to the sunset along the surrounding western treeline.
Continuing the intentionality inside, the home's interior successfully combines organic and industrial material to complement each other in a contemporary style. The open-concept home is filled with premium leather furniture pieces, which contrast against exposed cement walls but complement the floor-to-ceiling window views of the surrounding natural farmscape.
