To help establish their roots, a family that is relocating to the Hershey, PA area has partnered with SAAarchitects to design a custom residence that will help tell the story of their transplant to the new community. The concept plan incorporates the owner’s preferred style of minimalist industrial and is visually based on an agricultural plow– the idea stemming from the family’s experience in planting the seed for a new life in a new environment. The new build’s site is on a substantial area of farmland where its industrial design will provide nice visual contrast, like a piece of equipment plowing among the topography of the site’s natural farmlands (of which the family intends to continue farming).
Some materials for the 5,200 square foot build are to be precast concrete walls, sealed concrete floor with in-floor radiant heat, aluminum storefront windows, solid wood doors and cabinets with concrete countertops, exposed Parallam beams and steel frames which will collectively provide a raw, natural appearance. Additional features of the build include a three-car garage, main level living plus partial walk-out basement level with a pool and patio, and loft spaces in the great room and each of the children’s bedrooms.
