The Hammock House brings a distinctly modern element to a rural farm in the foothills of the Tryon mountain range. The 40-acre farm is dotted with several old growth trees and distant mountain views. The L-shaped concept arranged the house so the owners could enjoy the dramatic views and was located thoughtfully to preserve the root system and health of all the existing trees. Extended visits by family from South America presented a unique design challenge that was resolved by accommodating spaces and structure for a series of hammocks that can be hung from the roof structure at night.
