Modern Farmhouse

Finding the perfect balance between contrasting concepts when designing a custom home is often tricky. This is the challenge SDA faced while designing this family home in Solana Beach, California.

Following a modern farmhouse style, this home features classic board-and-batten sidings, steeply pitched roofs and covered porches to capture the charm of a farmhouse. On the other hand, neutral black and white finishes, and expansive window and door openings, gives the home a modern aesthetic. Choosing where to apply the modern and country elements was like putting puzzle pieces together and the result is an aesthetic tailored to the client.

Marrying indoor and outdoor spaces while defining boundaries where needed led to a house with seamless transition between spaces. An expansive Great Room with a high-pitched ceiling and a light-filled, open kitchen are at the center of the home. This space reaches outward, through expansive glass doors, to the rear deck and pool. While the house stands on a hill with magnificent views of the city and the ocean beyond; it is the infinity edged pool that smoothly guides your view straight to the sea as if it is at an arm’s reach.
