20th Century Architecture Explores the Village
Traditional materials in contemporary massing.
These are actually some photos I took in the Spring of this year. Behind the Higland Inn is a village designed by Charlottesville architects Peter Waldman and William Sherman. Only a few of the houses were actually built.
Houses were staggered for maximum sunlight...
...and featured detatched garage/shop buildings.
Natural light fills the living space and loft rooms.
This rendering shows the entire project as originally envisioned.
"We conceived this addition to the town in such a way that an essential characteristic, the relationship of the community to the surrounding agricultural landscape is preserved." -- Architect's Statement
