Becherer House Design by Robert M. Gurney Architect


Architect Robert M. Gurney has designed the Becherer House in Albemarle County, Virginia. Rolling pastures, bordered with dark, stained fences interspersed in woodlands determine the Albemarle County, Virginia countryside where by this challenge is positioned. The new property is sited in the borders of woodland about the crest of an hill, providing vantage view points with the pastures and distant treetops.


The house is conceived of three gable-roofed pavilions that produce a threshold between the woodlands along with the pastures, using benefit of two extremely diverse acenic panoramas.

The 1 space deep, middle residing pavilion contains great expanses of cup along two walls, affording views of both the woods and rolling horse pastures. This configuration insures the place might be flooded with light-weight whatsoever instances on your day time in the course of the year or so.


A screened porch and bluestone terrace, going the length of time from the home supplies a period to view sunsets in the pastures while a manicured lawn and dry-stacked slate wall provide an ordered changeover in the home on the woods above.


Gable roofs with black, position seam metal, clapboard siding along with the modest size from the separated pavilions evoke a familiar, comfortable rural vernacular. The great expanses of glass, cement mother board panelling and crisp, marginal detailing render your house decidedly cutting-edge.
