A Weird Modern Twist on an 1800s Farmhouse

Is This Incredible, or Incompatible?

 

An creative twist on something old and dated can sometimes come across like a breath of fresh air.  But that’s not always the case.  For example, have you ever seen a remake of an old classic movie that turned out to be a flop?  Well, this addition to an old 1800s farmhouse might fall in the latter category, but we’ll leave that up to you to decide.  This asymmetrical twist (quite literally) – whether you think it’s incredible or incompatible – is one thing for sure…. fascinating.  What do you think of it?

 

The owner of this 1800s farmhouse, in rural Pennsylvania, grew up in the old farmhouse right across the street. Her mother still lives there, and like the creek that runs through both properties, family flows freely back and forth. A suspended balcony draws the eye up the full height of the gently curving walls as sunlight washes down from above. Quartz tile and original plank floors surround a 1920’s schoolhouse sink in the vaulted second floor bathroom. The twisting volume is glimpsed from the road as it peaks out beyond the deep covered porch.
