Folly Farm Sliding French Door in Dining Room
Architect: Dale Hubbard, Surround Architecture
Folly Farm is a contemporary expression of historic, additive farmhouse-style architecture. The energetic, creative clients wanted a contemporary design, with casual spaces for their young family to create, play and find inspiration. To achieve these goals, forms, spaces and finishes were composed. They combining old and new, rich textures, with simple, yet age-old formal geometries. Not many projects can be described as “rugged” and “contemporary” in the same sentence, or as having “character” and “clean lines.” This project seems to transcend those boundaries in a compelling way, for a beautiful, fluid outcome. The peaceful surroundings provided the perfect opportunity to explore the interplay between interior and exterior space. Marvin windows were incorporated in the home design to match the balance of modern and antique styles through quality, color and grill design. Unique features offered by Marvin that made the difference include custom mullions, extra large transoms—some as large as 6’0” x 6’0”, and specially ganged units.
