Woodshed Vermont Guest House / Birdseye Design

Woodshed Vermont Guest House Birdseye Design

Woodshed Guest House is a residential project nestled in the foothills of the Green Mountains in Pomfret, Vermont.

Sited on a clearing on a steeply sloping and heavily wooded site, the Woodshed is both a guest house and entertainment space for the main residence down the road. The project is conceptually inspired by the vernacular woodshed, a familiar and iconic element in the Vermont landscape.

The residence is composed of two asymmetric gable roof forms, akin to the traditional woodshed, connected by a central entryway. The project is visually bookended by an auxiliary garage. The western, public elevation presents the continuous, wood textured wall that evokes the expressive, scrim wall of a traditional woodshed.

The project purposefully projects a minimal familiar elevation to the non-view, public street side and an engaging, contemporary open elevation to the private hillside. The eastern side opens to the views with a glass façade that invites the landscape and exterior retaining walls and terrace spaces into the structure.
