It’s common for homes clad in board and batten to feel more traditional or countrified. Perhaps that’s why Board + Batten, designed by Birdseye Design with interiors by Brooke Michelsen Design, is all the more appealing.
Though inspired by the board and batten siding ubiquitous to the historic Plymouth Notch area in Vermont, “Board + Batten is clad in a playful composition of painted board, mirror polish stainless steel panels and windows within the regimented spacing of the board and batten layout.”
Accessed by a narrow footpath, the secluded guest house is organised in a T-shaped symmetrical plan with bedrooms defining the edge of the forest and the living spaces projecting into the meadow.
The interior spaces are defined by a minimalist palette of finished concrete floors, painted walls, western red cedar details, and custom beds and cabinetry to complement the mid-century furnishings.
